Donate Your Fare
While working from home you can make a big difference to helping the community by simply donating the travel fare you would normally spend getting in to the office to the East End Emergency Appeal.
For over 30 years business people from ELBA member businesses have eagerly donated their time and expertise to support the hard pressed communities of east London and beyond. Now in the current COVID19 crisis, those communities need help like never before. The elderly and vulnerable are isolated at home. People have lost their jobs and livelihoods. Foodbanks are running low on supplies. Concerns about domestic abuse are on the rise.
Business people want to help – but they themselves are working from home and playing their part by staying in to help prevent the spread of the virus. ELBA is offering a range of remote volunteering opportunities so you can get involved and help the most vulnerable, and to help pupils and students (and their parents) who are at home, and support grassroots organisations working on the front line with your business expertise.
But there is another powerful way you can help if you are working from home and frustrated you cannot do more. ELBA has teamed up with our friends at East End Community Foundation to support the East End Emergency Appeal, which will get money quickly to where it is needed.
Why not donate your daily travel fare – or if you prefer, what you would have paid for a week, or even a month – everything will make a difference.
Everything you donate will be directed to the local organisations working on the frontline with the hungry and the vulnerable, including:
- Befriending and meals services for elders
- Mental health and well being support
- Homeless services including Coronavirus testing
When you make your donation – please mention the ELBA relief appeal and the name of your company – it helps us let our business supporters know about the great help are giving.
Thank you – your support will help to get the most vulnerable through this very difficult time.
