The Rocky Mountain Power Foundation recently donated $40,000 to help Community Action Services and Food Bank assist residents with emergency food, shelter, and housing during the COVID-19 crisis.

The foundation donated a total of $311,500 to community-serving organizations in Utah, Idaho and Wyoming to help people impacted by the worldwide pandemic.

“Food banks and other critical organizations serve the most vulnerable populations in our communities and are under tremendous strain,” said Gary Hoogeveen, president and CEO. “The Rocky Mountain Power Foundation is committed to supporting vital community organizations that depend and survive on contributions like this.”

Community Action Services and Food Bank is prepared to help the community weather the COVID-19 storm. It has streamlined its intake and food distribution processes. Also, sheltering and rent assistance services are done over the phone and email.

“We appreciate the generosity and confidence Rocky Mountain Power Foundation has in our organization and its ability to carry out its mission,” said Karen McCandless, executive director of Community Action Services and Food Bank.

“We’re also grateful for the additional outreach this will provide as we want to help as many people as possible and let the community know we are a good option as they look to donate resources. Specifically, the money will help us fill food supply and housing assistance gaps we anticipate experiencing as more people in the community are affected by the pandemic.”
