Renita Harrison, UNITE HERE Local 23 member and a single mom with three teens, is a cook for government contractor Sodexo who’s been laid off due to the Covid-19 economic crisis. The Community Services Agency’s Emergency Assistance Fund “benefitted me and my family by keeping my electricity on and helping me to juggle my other bills despite my not having a job; it helped me to breathe," said Ms. Harrison. "Renita is one of tens of thousands of workers needing assistance,” said CSA Executive Director Sonte DuCote. “That’s why we are so grateful to our affiliates and partners for their generous contributions." Contribution to CSA’s Emergency Assistance Fund can be made by check payable to the Community Services Agency (send to CSA at 815 16th Street, NW, Suite 1100) or online.
