Acts of Compassion, Kindness and Generosity

Every day, there are new stories published about volunteers finding meaningful ways to help those on the frontlines by sewing masks for healthcare workers, donating personal protective equipment and delivering food to emergency room personnel and grocery store workers. Are you feeling inspired to help? Below are a few ways you can support those impacted by COVID-19.

WITH GRATITUDE - Wendy Magitz

During these challenging times, it is so reassuring to be surrounded by such exceptional business office support staff. I appreciate everyone’s diligence in performing their tasks and keeping all back-office functions moving forward. I must, however, shine a light on one individual who exemplifies teamwork and the spirit of doing whatever is needed to accomplish the dynamic tasks at hand - Wendy Magitz. Wendy's faith is very important to her and guides her outstanding work ethic. Thank you for everything you do!


Gratefully,

Patrick Madden, Business Administrator

WE ARE CCESC

STAY CONNECTED

"The job coaches participated in a video conference to stay connected. It was very comforting to see the faces of colleagues as we caught up with each other from a distance. Luckily, we’re all healthy, even if we’re feeling a little stir crazy! Sharing this quick hour together provided just the trick to remind us that we’re not alone and that the people who care about us are still there. We decided to make this a weekly routine."


Nina Longer, Program Manager-Transition Services

STAY ENGAGED

"February was long. I was counting down the days until spring break and late breakfasts. I didn’t know then that something historic happening to the education system was just on the horizon. Classrooms have been replaced with laptops and zoom conference calls. However, the passion of educators is more evident than ever. Teachers are engaging students with the same dedication that has always been our forte. The only thing that has changed is the platform."


Elizabeth Racobaldo, Teacher
