A message from Stand Together

Attack Poverty and the Stand Together Foundation have partnered together to empower families. Help us empower more families together!

“The past few months have presented our country and communities with overwhelming challenges—and yet, through these new and ever-changing hardships, we have watched as the amazing members of the Catalyst Community evolve to best support their communities. Attack Poverty has gone above & beyond. We are so thankful to have worked with Brandon, Ashley, and Elise on the Stand Together Foundation, Give Together Now Campaign.  It was clear from the start of COVID that Attack Poverty was agile and committed to caring for the evolving and pressing needs of their neighbors.

We are thankful for Attack Poverty’s engagement with the Give Together Now campaign.  The Attack Poverty team worked to identify families directly impacted by COVID and get cash into their hands quickly.  These funds allowed families the autonomy to cover their specific and most pressing needs: from paying rent, to childcare, to buying groceries. When we launched another variation on the Give Together Now campaign, Give Kindness, Attack Poverty stepped up to the plate, mobilizing acts of kindness throughout their community—amplifying the amount of direct cash to families in need, as each act of kindness translated into $500 direct cash payments for individual families.  Attack Poverty encouraged and elevated community stories of kindness from Katy Auto Care to HEB, supporting a shared belief between Attack Poverty and Stand Together Foundation that everyone has something to contribute.   Attack Poverty team, thank you for continuing to be a leader in your community and a valued part of the Stand Together Foundation Catalyst Community.”
