C.A.R.E + Clean Air
This Fundraiser Ends March 31st
This project aims to supply air purifiers and air quality monitoring to San Francisco’s Potrero Hill public housing development. Contributions from socially-conscious businesses and individuals are the driving force behind this effort. Households that are home to individuals with higher respiratory risks, such as seniors, newborns, and those with pre-existing conditions will receive equipment first.
C.A.R.E. is a non-profit based in Potrero Hill that focuses on improving quality of life for local residents. This includes feeding those in need, extending educational resources to youth, and mitigating police-community relations. All funds raised here go directly to C.A.R.E. and will be applied to the C.A.R.E. + Clean Air Project.
Experts say California may begin experiencing wildfires year round due to the changing climate. This would make harmful smoke a persistent issue.
Many residents of the Potrero Hill Public Housing Development are essential workers, struggling to afford basic amenities. Budgeting for air purifiers is challenging at best and often impossible.
