GIVEslo is forming to help those in need in San Luis Obispo County

 

(This information is from an article on pages1and 19 of the April 25 - May 8 edition of the Estero Bay News by Theresa Marie Wilson)

 

Co-founders Karen Strauss and Rebecca Espy are launching a new organization, GIVEslo, a non-profit dedicated to building a network to donate items, time, and money to meet essential needs, which can be anything from helping to pay a utilities bill, providing a car seat for a new mother, or helping with medical expenses. Need referrals will come from schools, county health departments, medical professionals, and social services.

 

The co-foundeer's efforts are an expansion of the work of now-retired Sandy Richardson, who started SLO Womenade about 15 years ago, but the newly formed GIVEslo organization is more broad spectrum, avoiding being pigeonholed into just one thing. 

 

GIVEslo is currently completing their non-profit status, forming a board of directors, and creating a website, (giveslo.org). For funding, they plan to access the current list of Womenade doners, plus involving local businesses and applying for grants. For more information or to make a donation, contact Kara at 303-908-4498.
