or public health emergencies develop, people need help.

The Community Foundation for Mississippi (CFM),
working with Mississippi Commission for Volunteer Service (Volunteer Mississippi),
established the Mississippi Community Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund
as an initiative to create a state-wide pooled fund to respond to disasters in
Mississippi, including COVID-19, floods, tornados, hurricanes, and other natural disasters.
