Our Selfless Volunteers Are Working Tirelessly To Keep The Community Safe, But We Need Your Help 

Please Donate or/and Volunteer To Help Us Get Through This Difficult Time

This Is How We Protect & Empower Our Community!

In these challenging times of COVID 19 Pandemic, MY Project USA emergency response is in full effect.  The health and safety of our employees, the neighbors that we humbly serve and the volunteers that make it all possible remain an organizational priority.  Transparency is one of the reasons why city officials, community members, and generous donors trust us to do what we do, now more than ever!  Thus far, the following steps have been taken as a response to the current national state of emergency. 
  1. MY Deah's Store has been closed for the customers.
  2. MY Family Pantry has become a drive-through pantry for the time being. 
  3. A live fundraiser is online to raise funds for dry food staples, cleaning supplies, and hygiene items to be distributed to families in need. We need $30,000 to provide enough basic supplies for a month to these families. 
  4. Soccer and Reading programs have been suspended until further notice. Youth Town Hall has been postponed.
  5. A new awareness campaign has been launched in Maay Maay dialect to educate and empower the Somalii Bantu community members in Wedgewood. We are producing short videos of community members to educate each other. 
  6. Employees are provided with proper instruction and  individual work areas to implement social distancing. Most meetings are online. 
  7. Case in-takes are being done online and over the phone. 
  8. We are distributing these supplies over the weekend. This is in addition to the fresh produce that we pass on Saturday at MY Family Pantry. We need volunteers to help pack the boxes on Fridays.
