Winter Storm Recovery: Tony's Story

The winter storm in February seriously damaged Tony Spagnoli's house, leaving him with needed repairs beyond his means.

Thanks to CFA donors and the work of Boots On The Ground Ministry, contractors and volunteers, Tony and others now have restored homes.

When the storm hit, CFA established a special relief fund to help those most affected and in need. Our fundholders recommended grants from their funds to support the effort, and community members made individual donations to support the fund, generating more than $188,000 in grants to nonprofits providing essential needs and home repairs to people who needed it most.

Because of the power of endowment and our donors' passion for serving people in need, CFA fundholders are often able to quickly respond and recommend much-needed grants in time of need.
