Prepaid Debit Cards
In partnership with the Mayor's Angeleno Campaign and the City of Los Angeles Family Source (FSC) system, our Wilshire FSC team provided $1,990,600 to 2,153 clients. Families already meeting the federal poverty guidelines who experienced job loss due to the COVID-19 pandemic received gift cards of $700, $1,100, or $1,500 depending on family size. Our campaign officially ended June 30th, 2020.
