Richmond church offering relief for non-profits, businesses

From Virginia-

A Richmond institution created a fund to help organizations struggling during the coronavirus pandemic.

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church established a COVID-19 Relief Fund “to respond to the unprecedented levels of need in Richmond.”

The West Grace Street church made an initial investment of $150,000 to serve those in need.
On Thursday, Lynn Williams handed out bagged lunches to anyone who approached the church’s North 9th street entrance.

The Director of Outreach and Community Engagement has noticed new faces among those looking for food assistance.

“It’s more people out there that’s lost their jobs and their regular income and so they’re coming for the meal,” Williams explained.
