TERLINGUA—The Big Bend COVID-19 Pandemic Relief Fund will be sending out our final checks this month, August, 2020.
The Fund was established in March 2020 to help Brewster County residents deal with hardships caused by the pandemic. Volunteers from Alpine and Terlingua started the fund through Big Bend Citizens Alliance—a Terlingua-based non-profit organization.
The Fund has awarded over $67,000 to help residents and non-profits cover costs for housing and transportation, medical expenses, utilities, food, childcare needs and animal feed.
As we close out the Fund, we want to extend our sincerest gratitude to the volunteers, organizations and private individuals who so generously donated their time and money. This has been an outstanding show of community support and we couldn’t have done it without you – THANK YOU.
