We have been humbled by the hardships many of our residents are facing during these unprecedented times. Certainly, we wish we had unlimited resources to provide help to everyone in need, as there is so much good that all of us can bring to the world by caring for one another.

For the limited number of applicants that we can approve, those rewarded recipients will receive an email you your approval to confirm the amount of the approved *credit* you will receive on your account.
