Rainy Day Program
Sunshine on a
Going through a medical crisis can often leave a family struggling. A parent may need to quit working to care for the serious needs of their child, at a time when their daily expenses are only increasing. Numerous, extended hospital stays, overnight trips to visit specialists, expensive medications, and other unexpected financial burdens can add stress to an already stressful situation.
At the same time, normal expenses such as utility bills and house payments still need to be paid. With new added expenses piling up, families are overwhelmed and often require assistance.
These brave families are doing the best they can, just like everyone else, but they need our help.
The Rainy Day Program helps Raindancer families with:
House payments, utilities and other crucial (non-medical) bills
Gas, restaurant, and grocery store gift cards
Housing, lodging and travel needs required while traveling to specialized care
Other unexpected expenses that may arise during a crisis
Emergency support & other related needs related to the COVID-19 crisis
SJGF also sends Raindancer families meals through food delivery services like Uber Eats!
Our families often have rough days. The kind of rough days that make getting dinner on the table feel like climbing a steep mountain after running a full marathon. Because we stay connected to our families, we often know about these rough days, and also know when our families could use a little TLC. We like to help them by making their dinner time, S-I-M-P-L-E.
We use Uber Eats to send our families dinner, so Mom and Dad can take a deep breath and know.... dinner is served.
