The North Valley Community Foundation (NVCF) is offering tangible thanks to those who help others. Via its COVID-19 Employee Care Grant Program, the NVCF will give out awards—between $100 and $5,000, depending on staff size—to nonprofits that serve at-risk populations and residential care facilities in Butte, Glenn, Tehama and Colusa counties so they can treat employees with self-care initiatives or gestures.
“We are always looking for ways to help the helpers, and those helpers have never been more heroic than during this pandemic,” NVCF President and CEO Alexa Benson-Valavanis said in a news release. The foundation suggests rewards such as “staff appreciation events on Zoom, a delivered meal, virtual yoga or exercise classes, group meditation sessions, exercise equipment, gratitude gifts and other self-care ideas.”
The application period ends Friday (Jan. 15); submit proposals online (nvcf.org/covid-19-employee-care-grant).
