We urge you to help support those who fell on hard times in our Polish community. We need to expand our assistance and we need your help. Polish Assistance’s mission is to provide assistance, primarily financial, to persons of Polish origin who are at risk or needy.
The official poverty guideline starts at $11,670 per person and $15,730 of income for a family of two, we sadly report that most of applicants for our assistance meet this criteria. In a majority of the cases, these individuals are seniors with serious health issues that have no means of supporting themselves. Once an applicant becomes our beneficiary, we are often committing to his/hers support for their remaining lifetime as these individuals have little chance for quality of life improvement.
We wish to express our gratitude and thanks to all our previous and new supporters and also to our good will ambassadors. Your participation in our efforts is very important to us and is vital to the people who benefit from your generosity of spirit, time and financial contributions. Again, your donations are the mainstay of our ability to help those in need. Polish Assistance recipients receive assistance in meeting daily expenses, usually to supplement low social security payments or to cover extraordinary medical bills.
We appeal to you to be generous by donating today and attending our upcoming fundraising events. While a fundraiser is an opportunity to socialize and celebrate each other, more importantly, it is a major source of fundraising for Polish Assistance.
