Greater Goods Relief Fund
the greater goods relief fund is dedicated to those in the ojai area who have significant losses & little support. we are currently focused on ojai area residents affected by the thomas fire & are prepared to respond to potential winter floods or slides. our template is fairly simple: 100% of donations go to those in serious need of support. 50% is shared as cash aid at the end of each month & 50% is put aside for long term aid.
2/4 update: thank you to all the folks who came out on Saturday (2-4) to pick up relief checks & update us on their path to recovery. over $60,000 was raised in the month of january, largely due to the $30,000 that came in from the handmade makers market at poco farm & the $25,000 matching funds that were given by direct relief. direct relief also granted our fund an additional $20,000 that was specifically marked for immediate use, which allowed us to share $53,250 with 48 households (110 individuals) yesterday, & put $30,000 into our long term relief fund.
We continue fundraising and accepting applications to sustain support for victims of the Thomas Fire.
