Daily Update April 13

We are entering Week 5 of this new and most difficult environment.  Although we miss the face to face interactions, the CBC continues to provide you access to opportunity and growth by offering free webinars and updates.  Please feel free to contact CBC Executive Director Pat Frew at pfrew@cbcky.com  or any staff member and let us know how you are weathering this challenging environment.

Community Support

We applaud the efforts of the Donna Salyers Fabulous Furs and Master Provisions by sewing masks for first responders and healthcare workers.

Gift cards are an easy way to support local businesses.   Don’t forget to upload the $50 gift certificate receipt for your favorite restaurants/bars for the NKY Restaurant Relief Fund here.  Your participation could mean a much needed extra $1000 to a small business.

COVID-19 Update

Yesterday, Governor Andy Beshear provided an update on drive through testing sites and partnership with Kroger and as of 5 pm, Gov. Beshear said there were at least  1963 coronavirus cases in Kentucky, 134 of which were newly confirmed. The Governor is asking all Kentuckians to continue to fight the spread of the virus by following his 10-step guidance, which includes practicing social distancing and staying healthy at home.

Nonprofit Member Spotlight 

Mission: Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission helps low income individuals and families develop the knowledge, opportunities, and resources they need to achieve self-reliance.

The CBC recently touches base with Rhonda Chisenhall, Vice President of Community Development, NKY Community Action Commission and asked the following questions:

What are you biggest challenges now during this pandemic?

Our biggest challenge is meeting the needs of the families we serve.  Many of them have been laid off, or have had to stop working because of lack of child care.  And many families coming to us now have never had to seek assistance in the past.  Families are needing assistance with food, rental assistance, and additional utility assistance beyond what we can provide currently.

What do you need most at this time?

Funding to help us to pay for some of these emergency needs that are families are facing.
