Dear Friends,

As the COVID-19 pandemic and response continues to evolve we want to share with you our activities.  This last week a dedicated team of volunteers:

  • Contacted 50 of the 130 families (750+ individuals) we have worked with over the past 3 ½ years to 
    • Inquire as to their wellbeing and any urgent needs
    • Share information about the pandemic and proper safety precautions
    • Share information regarding free meals provided by their local schools and other agencies
    • Gauge interest in online community gatherings to keep children and adults connected
    • Share free wifi sources through internet providers and local schools
    • Make sure they all have access to laptops, tablets, phones or other communication devices
  • Provided essential items to newly arrived families (arrived within the last few weeks) using curbside drop offs and following cdc guidelines
  • Provided ongoing critical support to our most vulnerable families (one of whom is a single mother with a 4 year old daughter just released from over a month long stay in the hospital with a MRSA infection. This mother also has 3 other children, one of whom is a special needs child and was unable to visit her daughter in the hospital for about a week prior to her release because of the COVID-19 restrictions).

This week our priority is to 

  • Ensure families who have requested food items receive these items
  • Ensure families facing mounting bills in the face of lost income receive either direct assistance or information re: offered extensions or how to apply for them
  • Launch the first of our online community gatherings
  • Reach out to our next 50 families
  • Continue to recruit volunteers to help us communicate with families during this crisis and organize and deliver these needed programs
