KUDOS TO ALL! One San Mateo’s “Stock the Cupboards” campaign closed last evening with donations of $7,225, which included $2,000 in matching funds contributed by members of One San Mateo. This outcome far exceeded the original goal of raising $5,000 to support our undocumented neighbors who, in this COVID moment, are struggling just to put food on the table. A tremendous thank you to all who responded with such speed and generosity to make this campaign an overwhelming success!
Our “Stock the Cupboards – Abastecer los Armarios” campaign is coming to an end midnight Sunday.
