News from our Cecilia Rawlins Fund

Wiley Parents help us out! Do you have your CPA or experience working with non-profit books? Like planning events and hoping to throw the biggest one yet when it's safe? Marketing, advertising or grants experience?? Love raising funds for great causes? We are looking for new board members to join the Cecilia Rawlins Fund. If you're short on time, but you wish you could do more; we're a great option. We meet monthly (via Zoom currently), so the time commitment is low. However, your impact will be big for our Wiley community! Please email our current board president, Claire Roberts (claire.p.roberts@gmail.com) if you're interested in serving on the board.

If you're donating your stimulus check or have a big tax refund, please consider donating to the Cecilia Rawlins Fund. The Backpack Buddies program has increased from around 30 students to over 50 this year. Our goal is to ensure Wiley children and their families have access to food now and through the summer. The Cecilia Rawlins Fund also provides financial assistance to families experiencing an immediate need, like one-time rental assistance, utility bill payment, gas cards and assistance moving from homelessness to permanent housing.

Thanks to the Wiley community's generous and continued support, the Cecilia Rawlins Fund continues to provide needed resources to our children this school year in the absence of traditional food distribution methods. We are committed to supporting as many of our Wiley families as possible. For more information or to make a donation, visit our website. (http://rawlinsfund.org/)
