News from our Cecilia Rawlins Fund

The Cecilia Rawlins Fund helps nourish children at Wiley. Whether funding the Backpack Buddies program or providing grocery store gift cards during the pandemic, our goal is to ensure Wiley children and their families have access to food. The Cecilia Rawlins Fund also provides financial assistance to families experiencing an immediate need, like one-time rental assistance, utility bill payment, gas cards, summer meals, 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/)
