Community Love during COVID-19 in Madison area

Wisconsin state shape green over blue background, white outlined hands together near capital city location

We currently live in a community where people struggle with food access, experience homelessness, live in the shadows, and/or aren’t safe at home. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated these struggles for so many. Let’s support one another!

Alvarado Real Estate Group aims to act in solidarity with our fellow community members experiencing and challenging these inequalities. These three organizations engage directly with the community. We encourage you to make a financial donation if you are in a position to do so and/or learn more about the work they are doing. We also are including the extensive list of volunteering opportunities (link that) that United Way of Dane County has compiled.

Latinx Consortium for Action Emergency Relief Fund for COVID-19: Undocumented dislocated workers/small business owners and their families will be the primary beneficiaries of this emergency fund. Latinx are the largest non-white racial/ethnic group in Dane County, WI (~35,000), close to 70% live in Madison and Fitchburg. This community is uniquely vulnerable to the COVID-19 crisis: 70% are renters, 68% live in multi-unit dwellings, 34% fall below the poverty line, and almost two out of every five work in the service industry in Dane County. Moreover, nearly 50% of Latinx lack healthcare insurance coverage in Wisconsin. Please consider a financial contribution.

We also want to share the work that United Way of Dane County is doing to support these and so many other valuable organizations in the area.

United Way has an extensive list organizations in need of help and are leading the way in coordinating safe volunteering opportunities. It’s important to note that 100% of donations will go back to the community to help in the COVID-19 response.
