A group of community foundations and corporations gathered in Oakland Monday to announce their effort to provide millions of dollars in emergency relief for Alameda, Contra Costa and Solano counties.

The group, which includes the East Bay Community Foundation and six corporations, will provide a $5.2 million grant to support nonprofit organizations that provide food, shelter, employment services, health services and other assistance to East Bay victims of the economic recession.

The Bank of America Charitable Foundation, Chevron Corporation, OneCalifornia Bank, Kaiser Permanante, Pacific Gas and Electric Co., and Give Something Back are the six corporations providing the safety net grants.
