grantLOVE x Oscar de la Renta team up to support Project Angel Food's PAF’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund
Los Angeles, CA -- April 2, 2020 -- The grantLOVE project is thrilled to announce that Project Angel Food (PAF) has been able to provide COVID-19 Emergency Food Kits to each and every one of their 1,600 clients! We are incredibly grateful for our community’s boundless generosity through this difficult time. Thank you to everyone who purchased a print in support of this fundraiser!
PAF is now turning their attention to fundraising in order to meet the evolving needs of their clients and community as COVID-19 spreads. The grantLOVE project will continue donating 100% of the profits from the sale of the Oscar de la Renta–inspired LOVE prints to PAF’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund. Proceeds will help PAF keep their doors open and continue to serve their clients by hiring out-of-work restaurant chefs and gig economy freelancers to make up for the loss of 800 volunteer hours per week. 100% of PAF’s clients are at risk for COVID-19, and it’s vital that they’re able to continue providing services to their clients through this crisis.
Project Angel Food is the first beneficiary of an ongoing collaboration between the grantLOVE project and Oscar de la Renta. Since 2010 artist Alexandra Grant and the grantLOVE project have been regular contributors to the Angel Art auctions, raising more than $110,000 for Project Angel Food. On March 12th we were to launch our first initiative — an exhibition of artworks by Alexandra curated by Yasmine Zodeh — at the Oscar de la Renta store on Melrose Place, but had to postpone because of COVID-19. We are thrilled that the collaboration has been able to respond quickly to our new circumstances.

I knew during the AIDS crisis that with enough love, we would make it through. And we will make it through the coronavirus too. But it took a lot of love then, and it will take a lot of love now. I hope you’ll share your love with us.
