NEPA Gives Appeal Letter From the HRC

Members News

It goes without saying that the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been widespread and unforgiving.  While the health and wellbeing of both those we serve and those we work alongside are paramount, we must also face the financial impact the coronavirus has left in its wake.

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the cancellation of Diversity Rocks, HRF’s annual fundraising event, for two consecutive years.  Donations generated through Diversity Rocks fund both community-giving initiatives and HRC programs, all of which support individuals with disabilities.  For 2021, it was necessary to consider an alternate way to fundraise without risking the health and safety of our community.

Together, HRC and HRF have decided to partner with NEPA Gives for 2021:HRC as a participating organization, and HRF as a supporting foundation.  NEPA Gives is a multi-county, completely virtual fundraising opportunity.  Nonprofits seek to raise funds in a one-day-only event, hosted by several local community foundations.  This year, HRC and HRF will join this event occurring virtually on June 4th, 2021 at

We ask once again for your help to continue serving and supporting individuals with disabilities in our community.  Thank you for your generous donation and assistance.
