FOR  20 YEARS, THE EAST END FOUNDATION HAS HELPED LOCAL FAMILIES ENCOUNTERING FINANCIAL HARDSHIPS DUE TO DEBILITATING ILLNESSES OR OTHER TRAGIC CIRCUMSTANCES.

OUR MAIN EVENT, THE ANNUAL RELL SUNN MEMORIAL SURF BENEFIT IS OPEN TO ANYONE WHO WANTS TO JOIN IN. 

THIS YEAR DUE TO THE PANDEMIC, WE ARE NOT HOLDING A CONTEST, BUT INSTEAD HAVING A RAFFLE. 

WHILE OUR ROLE IS MINIMAL COMPARED TO THE ADVERSITIES THESE FAMILIES FACE, COMMUNITY LOVE AND CARING CAN BE AN EXTRAORDINARY GIFT WHEN SUPPORT IS NEEDED.

THE EAST END FOUNDATION IS CURRENTLY SUPPORTING SEVERAL PERSONS IN NEED:

• A LOCAL FAMILY REBUILDING THEIR HOME THAT WAS DESTROYED BY FIRE

• A SINGLE MOM RECOVERING FROM CANCER SURGERY WHILE MAINTAINING HER HOUSEHOLD BILLS

• A YOUNG CHILD DEBILITATED BY A SPINAL INJURY

• A FAMILY PREVENTING THEIR NEWLY ACQUIRED HOME FROM FORECLOSURE AFTER A STROKE

• SEVERAL MEN AND WOMEN STRUGGLING WITH AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES THAT TEMPORARILY CURTAIL THEIR FULL-TIME EMPLOYMENT
