EP Rent Help web portal opens on July 22

Beginning next week, area landlords seeking to help their tenants avoid eviction because of economic hardships brought on by COVID-19 can visit a new website as part of the EP Rent Help Program.

On July 22, landlords can visit  EPRentHelp.org to register their properties to participate in the EP Rent Help Program.

“This is the first formal step landlords can take to participate in the program which will grant millions of dollars in federal CARES Act funding to landlords within the City of El Paso,” program officials shared Friday.

Additional information is available now on the website, however the program is not yet accepting applications.

Program officials share that the program will not be administered on a first-come, first-first serve basis; rather the partnership will seek to distribute the funds to those who are in the greatest need.

“Landlords must apply on behalf of their tenants; tenants will be required to provide information to their landlords to complete the application,” officials shared.

Officials add that while this program is limited to tenants living in the City of El Paso,  program officials will not ask about immigration status nor will it be used in making decisions about who receives funding awards.

A fund of the Paso del Norte Community Foundation, Under One Roof is a charitable organization of the El Paso Apartment Association established to provide financial and other support to residents of El Paso County who have been harmed by disasters such as fire, flood or pandemic, and support the professional development of owners, managers and staff of rental properties.

Recently, the City of El Paso selected a collaborative proposal from the PDN Community Foundation and Under One Roof to administer funding for rental assistance to serve thousands of El Pasoans who are facing the prospect of losing their homes due to the health and economic crisis caused by COVID-19.

▪       July 22-28, 2020: Eligible landlords will be able to access necessary forms and begin inputting preliminary information about their properties into the Web portal.

▪       July 29-August 2, 2020: Tenants and landlords can gather and sign supporting documentation and input final application information into the Web portal.

▪       August 3 and onward: The Paso del Norte Community Foundation and its partners will verify applications and begin disbursing funds directly to landlords.

Task Force seeks to support students with devices to continue education

After the sudden closure and the uncertain timeline to reconvene schools due to COVID-19, over 1,500 students are facing the challenge of not being able to complete their coursework remotely; now Success Through Technology Education (STTE) looks to help those tripped up by the digital divide.

“There is a huge need to find devices for students. With the uncertainty when schools will reconvene, the time is now to act and help ease the potential of a virtual learning gap.” Joseph Sapien, STTE executive director.

Officials say this digital divide is a pressing concern, as it not only affects our region’s ability to remain economically competitive but presents detrimental implications for the academic and professional future of our community.

“I joined this initiative because I worry about our students not having the needed tools to complete their academic work.” Francisco Poblano, UTEP VP, IT Department.

A group of local leaders has formed a Device Shortage Task Force, to collectively seek innovative strategies that swiftly help connect students with laptop devices to alleviate the Borderplex region’s digital divide.

Below are two strategies the taskforce is actively preparing to deploy.

Strategy 1: Company Legacy Refurbish Initiative

Companies or individuals with an excess of functional laptops can refurbish and donate new or used functional laptops (with an Intel i3 processors or better) to families in need. Donations can be made by clicking here.

Strategy 2: Laptop Donation Fund

STTE has set up a dedicated fund with the Paso Del Norte Community Foundation to help fund strategies and purchase devices for students in need.

Donations are tax-deductible and can be made via this link.

Canutillo Alumni seek support for awarding scholarships as annual golf tournament canceled

While the Canutillo Alumni Foundation for Education had to suspend its annual golf tournament this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the alumni are still planning to award college scholarships and are asking for support.

The 2020 golf tournament, sponsored by Charlie Clark Nissan, was already postponed to July 17 from its original date in May, and CAFÉ hoped to hold it at Butterfield Trail Golf Club. The permanent closure of Butterfield Trail also added to the misfortune.

CAFÉ, a fund under the Paso Del Norte Community Foundation, believes that to protect the health and safety of the event participants, it is best to call off the event this year and plan for a date in 2021. But, the group is determined to do all that it can to sustain its scholarship program.

“We are disappointed that we could not hold this important event that provides much-needed assistance for our Canutillo and Northwest students,” Armando Rodriguez, CAFÉ Golf Tournament organizer said. “But, we are hopeful that through the generous support of our regular dedicated tournament sponsors and the community, our students will get the help they need to go to college.”

Anyone interested in contributing any amount to the scholarship program is encouraged to visit the CAFE’ donation page via the PDN Foundation. Donations of $1,000 or more will have the opportunity to have a scholarship acknowledgment in the name of their choice.

CAFÉ also has a monthly and annual giving membership program where members make regular automatic contributions with a credit card or payroll deduction for Canutillo ISD employees. To learn more and join CAFÉ, click here.

SISD Cares Fund established to help feed families impacted by COVID-19 pandemic

With concern for its neighbors and a desire to make a positive difference, the Socorro Independent School District recently established a SISD Cares Fund to support El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank (EPFH Food Bank) in their efforts to feed families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

All monetary donations to the SISD Cares Fund will go toward providing meals to El Paso families during this pandemic.  The EPFH Food Bank has distributed close to 80,000 boxes of food to nearly 23,000 families in El Paso since the COVID-19 pandemic began, and there is still great need to assist those who are food insecure.

“We are proud to team up with our community partners El Pasoans Fighting Hunger and Paso del Norte Community Foundation to help families during this challenging and unprecedented pandemic,” said SISD Superintendent Jose Espinoza, Ed.D.

“It is of utmost importance to provide support to those that need it most. We encourage those in Team SISD who can join in our efforts to ensure no child or family goes without the nutritious food they need to stay healthy.”

Donations also will support the challenge grant established by Hunt Family Foundation, Paul L. Foster Family Foundation and MountainStar Sports Group Foundation who have agreed to match all donations made to El Pasoans Fighting Hunger up to $1 million.

“Donations of any amount will help feed the SISD community and this is a great opportunity for Team SISD, including employees, parents and students, business associates, and supporters, to contribute to those in most need during this difficult and uncertain time,” district officials share. “Together, Team SISD can make a meaningful impact.”

El Paso Food and Beverage Worker’s Fund still accepting applications for assistance

Even with the recent limited openings of some El Paso restaurants and bars, local food and beverage workers are currently still struggling financially because of COVID-19.

Maggie Asfahani, creator of the fund, wants workers to know that funds are still available to those who need it.

“Although restaurants and bars are now able to open, we recognize that there is still an economic struggle for employees because of some of the state’s requirements on our businesses,” said Asfahani, owner of Salt + Honey Bakery Café in Five Points.

Although the governor recently announced that restaurants can now open at 50 percent capacity and bars at 25 percent capacity, these requirements will not be effective in El Paso until May 29.

For those who need assistance,  $100 gift cards are still available from the Paso del Norte Community Foundation’s El Paso Food and Beverage Workers Fund.

“Our restaurant and bar employees are still in need of assistance and we want them to know that this fund is here to help,” said Tracy J. Yellen, CEO of the Paso del Norte Community Foundation. “Applying for assistance can be overwhelming for some community members but we have made applying for the El Paso Food and Beverage Workers Fund simple.”

$100 gift card funds are still available. To receive these funds, submit the following information to cpedregon@pdnfoundation.org: legal name, physical address, telephone number, email address, and a copy of a letter for temporary closure or notice of termination from employment from a restaurant or bar located in El Paso County as of March 18, 2020.

Funds will be awarded to qualified applicants by Workforce Solutions Borderplex until funds are no longer available.

The Food and Beverage Workers Fund is still accepting donations by clicking here or mailing a check payable to the Paso del Norte Community Foundation (with a note that it’s for the El Paso Food and Beverage Workers Fund) to Paso del Norte Community Foundation, 221 N. Kansas Street, Suite 1900, El Paso, Texas 79901.

Mayor Margo contributes to Fund for First Responders

Just last week, the Paso del Norte Community Foundation established the EP COVID-19 Medical Equipment and Supply Fund last week to support the production and acquisition of needed protective equipment for front line workers.

Mayor Dee Margo was among the first to contribute personally to the new fund with a significant gift for PPE for the City of El Paso Police Department.

“Ensuring the safety of our community is the top priority of our police department at all times, and especially during this time,” says City of El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen. “We are grateful to Mayor Margo, for stepping up with this generous personal gift to ensure the health and safety of our police force as they work to serve our community.”

“I am blessed to be in the position to give back to our City that has given me so much,” said Mayor Dee Margo. “This personal donation of facial masks to the El Paso Police Department, through the PDN Foundation COVID-19 Medical Equipment and Supply Fund, will ensure their safety and wellness while responding to our public safety needs during our fight against COVID-19. We are a generous community driven by strength and unity.”

The EP COVID-19 Medical Equipment and Supply Fund has raised nearly $15,000 for protective equipment including an $8,400 gift from the Mayor, for the purchase of PPE for the El Paso Police Department from MFI International.

The balance of funds have been raised to support the production of face masks and face shields by a team of local 3D printers including the non-profit Fab Lab of El Paso. These local makers are using available 3D printing capabilities to fashion masks and shields for front line health care workers including physicians, nurses and staff at Centro de Salud Clinica La Fe.

Protective equipment – whether made locally or sourced by other providers – is an on-going need in our community.

Video+Stoy: EPISD Cares campaign funds meals for families impacted by pandemic

Wednesday morning, officials with the El Paso Independent School District announced the launch EPISD Cares, a fundraising campaign to help El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank in their efforts to feed families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“EPISD is distributing 32,000 meals per week at 50 sites throughout the District in order to meet the dietary needs of children during school closures, but our teachers and staff expressed a desire to do even more,” said Superintendent Juan E. Cabrera.

“EPISD Cares was born from that commitment to service, which has been the cornerstone of this District for more than a century.”

All monetary donations made through the EPISD Cares Fund will go toward providing meals to El Paso families during the pandemic.

EPISD Cares is a fund from the Paso Del Norte Community Foundation, and donations can be made by accessing the fund site here.

The food bank has distributed close to 80,000 boxes of food to nearly 23,000 families in El Paso since the COVID-19 pandemic began impacting the Border.

Donations made to EPISD Cares will be matched dollar for dollar up to $1 million by the fund created through the partnership of the Paul L. Foster Family Foundation, the Woody & Gayle Hunt Family Foundation and the MountainStar Sports Group Foundation.

Local restaurateurs opens fund to assist food and beverage workers

Local food and beverage workers are among the first to be hurt by the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. But help is coming thanks to a group of local restaurateurs.

“Restaurants, bars and coffee shops are inherently social places, so guidance from health authorities to limit exposure to crowds and to practice social distancing hit us all hard,” said Maggie Asfahani, who owns Salt + Honey Bakery Café in Five Points.

“We were already hurting, but the executive order that restaurants close their dining rooms forced many restaurants, including mine, to temporarily close and lay off the employees who are the backbone of our business.”

Asfahani is leading a group of local service industry volunteers who have established the El Paso Food and Beverage Workers Fund within the Paso del Norte Community Foundation. The fund will support a grant to Workforce Solutions Borderplex to provide $50 gifts to qualifying food and beverage workers who have been laid off or are working significantly reduced hours due to a temporary closure as a result of the pandemic.

“The Paso del Norte Community Foundation was established to support the needs of our region,” said Tracy J. Yellen, CEO of the Paso del Norte Community Foundation. “We are grateful to local restaurateurs and Workforce Solutions Borderplex for stepping up in these challenging times to support our workforce.”

“Across the country, the needs are great for employers and employees who have seen severe impacts to their businesses and their livelihoods,” said Leila Melendez, CEO of Workforce Solutions Borderplex.

“The generosity and leadership which these restaurateurs have shown typifies the strength, resilience and selflessness of the Borderplex region.”

El Paso Giving Day, El Paso Giving Time generate nearly $3.7M in donations

During the fourth annual El Paso Giving Day and the first-ever El Paso Giving Time, generous donors contributed $3,630,966 to support the needs of local non-profit organizations 

This record-breaking philanthropic event was fueled by donations as small as $10 and a matching commitment of up to $1.5 million from Walmart.

“Every year the amount of charitable giving grows on El Paso Giving Day; this time we were given the opportunity to make an even bigger impact for the non-profits,” said Tracy Yellen, Chief Executive Officer of the Paso del Norte Community Foundation.

“Walmart’s commitment of $1 million in matching funds during El Paso Giving Day and up to $500,000 for El Paso Giving Time sparked a spirit of generosity and volunteerism which surpassed our expectations and allowed us to raise more money to support the needs of non-profits this year than in all previous years combined.”

During the weeklong early giving period, the El Paso community exceeded expectations by quickly meeting the Walmart match of $1 million.

By midnight on El Paso Giving Day, November 14, total donations stood at $3,188,543 including the Walmart match.

But, this year, El Paso Giving Day was only the beginning. Between November 15 and December 31, Walmart made a donation in honor of each qualifying hour volunteered with participating organizations.

The 86,346 hours of eligible volunteer time from EPGT resulted in a Walmart matching donation of  $442,423.

“Walmart’s extraordinary generosity ignited an unparalleled spirit of giving measured in both time and treasure, Yellen added.

“We are so proud that our community came together to give financially at record-setting levels and also rolled up their sleeves to donate over 86,000 hours in volunteer time to support nonprofit organizations.”
