For over a hundred years, The Brashear Association has served people in poverty – from those facing temporary challenges to families living in chronic, multi-generational poverty and works to move them toward self-sufficiency. In this time of need, they are changing their Food Pantry to a “Grab and Go” service and expanding the days of the week they offer service. They are facing extra need and need more help to help support our community.
The South Side Slopes Neighborhood Association is excited to announce a $5,000 matching grant for The Brashear Association Food Pantry. In an effort to help our neighbors in this very difficult time, the next $5,000 donated to The Brashear Association will be matched by the Association.
