The Instant Impact Program started during my campaign for Congress and focuses on providing immediate relief for people in the district facing economic hardships
Covid-19 has caused dramatic and disturbing levels of food insecurity and unemployment. These are issues that many in my district can't face without a little assistance. Hunger relief organizations were already being stretched thin with more than 1 in 4 kids in the district food insecure, as of 2018.
When Congress failed to act to extend Unemployment Benefits and increase money for food insecurity, I had to act. So, I started writing checks to hunger relief organizations, and my campaign will continue to use its resources to help people.
Too often, politicians only tell you what they are going to do. We don't have time for rhetoric and empty promises. The time to act is NOW. Our citizens can't wait. Children are going hungry and I won't let that happen.
Now my campaign is over, I did not win, but my fight to serve the people in our communities is still paramount. Your contribution will help so many.
