Our vibrant community has been left vulnerable to food insecurity, unemployment and lack of financial stability causing our families to plunge further into poverty. Your contribution however big or small will put food on the table of a family in our school. It will help pay for essential monthly expenses that are hanging over our families’ heads causing strain and fear of displacement. Go HERE to read more and donate.

The MS 136/Charles O. Dewey school community has created a GoFundMe page to support their families in need. From their page: Our amazing, strong, and vibrant MS 136 community has been hit hard by the Covid-19 Pandemic. Some of our families have lost loved ones. They and many others have also suffered job loss, or have fallen victim to this virus themselves. Our Title I school is home to a hard-working community –who even in the best of times may live paycheck to paycheck—and today those families are struggling to meet basic needs.
