We're running the NYRR Bronx 10-Miler to raise money for emergency funding for vulnerable communities in NY. Over its 28 years in operation, the Chelsea Relief Fund has served thousands of low-income New Yorkers and their families through the administration of small emergency grants, from $50 to $1,000. The fund has helped clients pay for one-time housing-related expenses, personal care items, childcare needs, filing or application fees, and many other emergency needs. These are expenses that are largely not covered by any public benefits programs.
