Attached is Peninsula Poverty Response’s (PPR) application for PRF funds. PPR’s mission continues to be meeting the immediate and long term needs of our Long Beach community to reduce the consequences related to poverty through advocacy, awareness and action. We are acutely aware of the needs which the COVID 19 pandemic has placed on local families and individuals. During this time of shelter in place, businesses closing and high unemployment there has been a significant increase in resource needs. PPR is hoping to meet those needs offering both financial and referral assistance.Thank you for this opportunity. I look forward to hearing from Rotary.Dawna SvarenPPR chair
