We're all in this together.
A couple of days ago, I wrote about how we at VEJ were looking into ways to help people right now and for the next few weeks.
You likely already know (or guessed) that all regular VEJ events and programs are on hold until further notice.
But VEJ is still a community of more than 2,000 donors, friends, neighbors, and volunteers. Surely we can do something to help those who are in greatest need.
So, as promised, here is what VEJ is going to do now for those we think we can help. If you are able and it seems good to you, please join us. It's not a stretch for me to say that what you do next could be the difference between death and life.

VEJ's response to COVID-19 has four parts at this time:
We are working on some other things that we hope will make the most of this crisis and serve the needs of everyone. As those plans come together, I will be sure to share them with you here.
So, let's do what we can. We may not control everything, but we do control a lot. Let's focus on that.
Please let me know if we can be of any help to you, whether it's by getting you in touch with our partners at Brightmoor Connection, setting you up with a pen pal, or just praying for you.
And I am praying for you. May God give you good health and great hope.
Grace and peace,
BT Irwin, executive director
