Donating to LEAP
A Note on COVID-19:
Since March 2020, everything has changed - except the solidarity of our LEAP family. The day our school closed last spring, our teachers packed school supplies, books and tablets, which we delivered to families in stages through the spring and summer. Through our partnership with Porch Durham, we have been able to give our families food and gift cards for food shopping.
In June 2020, 77% of the COVID cases in Durham County were in the Latino community. In response to many of our students' parents being laid-off or becoming sick, we began making grants to families so they could pay their rent and remain housed.
In the fall of 2020, we started seeing our preschool students in person again - in small groups outside - as well as online. Our tutoring students and their tutors are meeting online through zoom. Now that we are not constrained by the size of our building, we have more than doubled the number of students we are tutoring to fifty students! We are continuing to work with community partners to give our families access to food and other forms of support.
We are also continuing to assist families with financial needs ourselves - because that's what families do.
Financial donations enable us to meet the changing needs of our families and our organization. Thank you to our many donors!
We are currently raising funds to buy tablets so that all our preschool and tutoring students can have tablets at home. Virtual learning cannot happen without them! Thanks for joining us if you can.
