#SHAREMYCHECK SANTA FE LOGISTICS
People who have received (or will be receiving) a stimulus check pledge to share all or part of the funds with #ShareMyCheck Santa Fe. These funds are separate from the SF Mutual Aid fund, which is a general fund covering the cost of food, medical, and bill assistance for members in need. The #sharemycheck fund will be distributed to those who won’t be receiving a stimulus check, primarily undocumented people in our community, regardless of specific need.
The collaborating organizations Earth Care/YUCCA/Poder Familiar, DSA-SF, SF Dreamers Project, Communities in Schools, Interfaith Leadership Alliance, Santa Fe Faith Network for Immigrant Justice, and Fathers New Mexico are in constant contact with community members who qualify for assistance through this program. Each organization will ascertain eligibility for people they work with and will refer eligible individuals and families to the fund. A committee of leaders from our organizations, with membership in the impacted community, are reviewing cases and making determinations for eligibility based on needs assessments.
The committee has determined that individuals referred to the program will receive $500 and families will receive up to $1500 depending on size. This may change depending on the amount of funds donated.
We will move forward with this project on a rolling basis, as we receive funds and are able to distribute them to those who qualify. Please help us spread the word by sharing this page with your networks.
