$2,440.00 Matching Funds Remaining.
A Great Grandmother of Eight will match up to $5,000 to go to One 80 Place to help with those sheltered and provide for sanitary cleansers to simply wash hands during the COVID-19 crisis.
As noted in the Charleston Post & Courier, One80 Place, a shelter in Charleston, has suspended new admissions since the city’s stay-at-home ordinance began in March. Leaders there decided to temporarily stop community lunches and are mostly focusing on people already in the shelter. The approximately 100 residents are screened twice a day for symptoms of the virus. The shelter hired a second nurse to have medical staff available seven days a week. So far, no one in the shelter has tested positive for COVID-19.
“I don’t think we’ve seen the peak impact with this population yet,” said Marco Corona, the shelter’s chief development officer.
