For 36 hours starting at 7:00am on Wednesday December 14, we are one of nearly 400 local nonprofits doing great work for the community to participate in giveBIG through the San Diego Foundation.
Donations of $25 to $10,000 are eligible for matching from The San Diego Foundation's match pool, which is currently $150,000. GiveBIG is the first giving event of its kind in San Diego with an online format that makes donating fun, easy and impactful.
We lost our home in the 2007 Witch Creek Fire in Poway CA. As was the case with most (if not all) of my neighbors, we were drastically under insured through no fault of our own. I don’t believe that anyone is prepared for such a catastrophic emotional and financial loss. The task of completely rebuilding your life is monumental.
Fortunately, the city of Poway co-operated with CARe and allowed them to hold bi-weekly insurance meetings in the City Chambers. After attending 2 of the group meetings we then scheduled several one-on-one meetings with CARe and were able to start to piece together the puzzle that is a catastrophic insurance claim.
The resources which CARe was able to put us in touch with were incredible, and after they showed us the basics of handling an insurance claim we felt that we had knowledge to work through the once daunting task of negotiating with our insurance company.
We could not have made it through the process without the information, help and encouragement that we received from CARe
