Ed Fund Appeals for Donations for WCCUSD Families in Need




The Ed Fund is rallying community support for West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD) families in need during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

In a statement on its website, the Richmond-based nonprofit appealed for donations to its COVID-19 School Closure Fund to help the WCCUSD community’s most vulnerable with key resources.

“During school closures and the COVID-19 crisis, the Ed Fund will be directing community donations to support families in need identified by the WCCUSD Office of Family & Community Engagement. Support could include groceries, internet services and other emergency needs that help stabilize families during this crisis.”

According to the Ed Fund, donations are unrestricted unless donors indicate a specific area that they would like their donation directed toward. “Donations made to fiscal projects and to adopt-a-school funds are restricted to those purposes,” the Ed Fund noted on the donation page.

“It means a lot to us that you support the work we are doing for our students,” the nonprofit added.

The Ed Fund’s mission is to mobilize resources for students and align the efforts of its partners to ensure that all students succeed in college, career and life.

To support local families in need via the COVID-19 School Closure Fund, donate here. Questions? Contact the Ed Fund at 510.233.1464 or visit its website.


East Oakland Organizer Needed

The East Oakland Stadium Alliance (EOSA) is seeking an Oakland-based grassroots organizer for a short-term engagement to help grow and mobilize our coalition! Comprised of local businesses, workers, labor organizations, and community members, we are deeply concerned about the Oakland A’s proposal to leave the Coliseum site in East Oakland and build a new stadium at the port. An ideal candidate has on-the-ground campaign field experience, a strong awareness of Oakland and Alameda County political figures, and deep ties to East and West Oakland communities. Being a local resident of Oakland is a plus.

Employment with EOSA is a part-time role and will last for a minimum of four months with an opportunity to extend longer. Transportation and cell phone use would be reimbursed and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Emily Penrod, For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
