It has been a long year, and we’ve been working urgently to support one another during the COVID-19 crisis. Our neighbors are in need of mental, emotional, and material support, and it is all of our responsibilities to do the best we can to deliver the necessities because we believe that together, we will make it through this. And we know that all things shall pass.
Since COVID-19 harrowed our communities, Friends of Hue has been hard at work to help alleviate the distress that our community has had to endure. Some of our projects have included:
- Distribution of personal protective equipment to our medical workers and our homeless neighbors
- Distribution of food to families and to our seniors
- Cash assistance for community members who have suffered financial hardship due to the pandemic
- Census work and community announcements
- Pro bono legal assistance
- Public health announcements through zoom webinars and social media channels
- Community Emergency Response Training
It is our honor to announce that the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors has bestowed upon us the Supervisor’s Medal for Outstanding Service During the COVID-19 Pandemic for our service to the community.
Thank you to the Board of Supervisors, the Friends of Hue Team, all of our amazing volunteers, and our donors who have given their hearts and answered to the call! We love and appreciate you!
We’d like to share the letter from Cindy Chavez, President of the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors:
Dear Friends of Hue:
This has been a year of tremendous struggle for all of us living in Santa Clara County. The human cost of COVID-19 has been enormous, more than 500 lives lost and a staggering amount of sorrow and suffering. However, during this crisis our community has come together like never before thanks to the work of people such as yourself.
The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors is honoring your actions and service to the community during the pandemic with the Supervisor’s Medal for Outstanding Service During the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The medal will be presented virtually during the Board of Supervisors meeting on Monday, December 14, 2020.
Please join us if you can in order to get some well-deserved recognition for all that you have done for our community in 2020.
Thank you once again for all that you have done in response to the pandemic, and for being a role model to all of us.
President, Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors
