🏄‍♀️ Hang Ten for Giving Tuesday! 🤙 The waves of need in Santa Cruz County and the Pajaro Valley are rising fast. Recent stats from the California Budget & Policy Center reveal that over 60% of households earning less than $35,000 in California are struggling to cover basic expenses, from food to housing and medical costs. Childhood poverty has shockingly doubled nationwide in the past year, and malnutrition is taking a toll on older adults. The end of federal and local aid from the COVID-19 Pandemic has amplified economic pressures, inflation, and housing costs in our community, pushing many toward deeper poverty. But, fear not! 🌊 Community Bridges' family of ten programs is here to ride the wave with you, ensuring no one falls through the cracks. Support our mission at communitybridges.org/givingtuesday/ and let’s ride this wave of change together! 🌟 #GivingTuesday #CommunityBridges #HangTenForChange ... See MoreSee Less
