Orlando United Assistance Center Match

On June 2, the start of Pride Month, Florida Governor DeSantis vetoed from the state budget critical funding allocated to the Center for the Orlando United Assistance Center (OUAC) to provide support for immediate family members of the Pulse tragedy and survivors.  The request was approved by both the House and Senate to ensure that case management and mental health services can continue for the Pulse affected community being served by OUAC. 

Because of this, the family of Jerry Wright, who was taken from them on June 12th at Pulse, is stepping up and leading a matching funds campaign.
 
Jerry’s parents, Fred and Maria Wright, are asking the community and corporate and philanthropic donors to step up as they did and donate to reach this important goal. 

They are pledging $25,000 in matching funds to raise a goal of $50,000 in June. Jerry's parents, Maria Jose and Fred Wright ask the community and corporate and philanthropic donors to step up as they did and donate to reach this important goal. 

Please listen to this message from Jerry's parents and contribute today. 

  • The veto will leave many in the Pulse-affected community without services they require and have come to expect. 
  • This shortfall of $150,000 couldn’t come at a worse time, when fundraising is more difficult and when families may have been additionally affected by the global pandemic.
  • The amount was but a drop in the bucket of the over 100-billion-dollar budget the Governor approved. 
  • The Governor’s veto has caused additional hurt in the Pulse-affected community because of its timing so close to the 5-year remembrance of the tragedy.  

El 2 de junio, a comienzos del Mes del Orgullo, el Gobernador de Florida DeSantis ha emitido un veto a un presupuesto estatal muy importante destinado al Centro de Asistencia Orlando United (OUAC, por sus siglas en inglés) para ayudar a los familiares directos de los supervivientes de la tragedia de Pulse. La solicitud fue aprobada tanto por la Cámara de Representantes como por el Senado para asegurar que los servicios de tramitación de casos y salud mental puedan continuar para la comunidad afectada por lo sucedido en Pulse, y apoyados por el OUAC.

Por los motivos mencionados anteriormente, la familia de Jerry Wright, quien perdió la vida el 12 de junio en Pulse, ha dado un paso al frente para liderar una campaña de recaudación de fondos.

Los padres de Jerry, Maria Jose y Fred Wright piden a los donantes corporativos, filántropos y de la comunidad que sigan su ejemplo y den un paso al frente, donando fondos para alcanzar este objetivo tan importante. Ellos han prometido igualar la recaudación de $25,000 para alcanzar el objetivo de $50,000 en junio.

Escuchen este importante mensaje de los padres de Jerry y hagan su contribución hoy mismo.

  • El veto dejará a numerosas personas afectadas por la tragedia de Pulse sin los servicios que necesitan y que ahora ya esperan.
  • Este recorte de $150,000 no podría llegar en peor momento, cuando la recaudación de fondos es más difícil y las familias puede que hayan sido afectadas, además, por la pandemia.
  • El monto era solo la punta del iceberg de los más de 100 mil millones de dólares de presupuesto que el gobernador aprobó.
  • El veto del gobernador ha causado un daño adicional en la comunidad afectada por lo ocurrido en Pulse, ya que coincide temporalmente con la conmemoración del quinto aniversario de la tragedia.
