The economic impact of COVID-19 is projected to be severe. It is expected that thousands of low income families will be affected by this pandemic. School Administrations and Soup Kitchens are coming forward to help the needy. But they are facing severe shortage of food and essential supplies. 

Sewa4Community is a fundraiser by Sewa International’s Boston Chapter and 15 other community organizations in New England. They share a common motto of “Service to Humanity is Service to Divinity.” 

Through this joint initiative, they support the food pantries, soup kitchens, and homeless shelters in New England and also make sure that the staff has sufficient food supplies to meet the rising demand.

Keeping in mind the social distancing guidelines, an online fundraising campaign was started. In less than a month, it has raised more than $11,000 donated by 187 kind donors. The food pantries of New England are the direct beneficiaries of this fundraiser.

Similar fundraisers were started by Sewa International and other local organizations in USA including New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Illinois, Georgia and Pennsylvania. So far $80,000 has been raised and is expected to rise further in near future.

Sewa International owes its success to the selfless service of its volunteers and the generosity of the donors helping the community during this pandemic.
