What we need in the wake of the Coronavirus
Like all organizations that work with people, we are shifting the way we work to meet their needs. Our families' greatest need right now is to continue learning from their teachers. We have committed to paying our staff, as they continue to teach our children. In terms of materials, our families' greatest needs are for devices to access online resources, bilingual books and food. We are in the process of distributing the devices we have to families that need them and connecting families to Spectrum for the free internet access they are offering. We are also coordinating with Porch Durham, which is offering gift cards to Food Lion. We know that these needs are likely to grow and continue as employees are laid-off from their jobs.
Cash donations are especially useful right now, because we can deploy them to the areas of greatest need as things evolve.
