GIVEslo helps those in need in San Luis Obispo County


(Some of 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) and has been updated July 22, 2021 by Robert Jonez, CRC.


Co-founders Kara Strauss, President and Rebecca Espy, Secretary, along with Erin Parker, Treasurer, have launched 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-founder'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. 



Update July 22, 2021 by Robert Jonez, CRC:

GIVEslo now has 501c3 non-profit status, and has created a website, They have been providing much needed service and requested items for the past year. Because of their efforts, funds have run very low. For funding, besides community outreach, they are accessing the current list of Womenade doners, plus involving local businesses and applying for grants. They are accepting individual donations through their Facebook page. For more information or to make a donation, contact Kara at 303-908-4498.
