Useful Links for Families
We are all in this together!
The COVID-19 Pandemic and subsequent non-essential business closures have deeply impacted our community in ways that we never imagined. Some people have unexpectedly found themselves without employment and may be in need of additional support. While the school district continues to plan on distributing meals for students weekly on Wednesdays, families' needs may be greater than this this. The purpose of this newsletter is to share current community resources available for food and utility assistance should you need it. Each link is live and will take you to a related website for additional information.
If you learn of other resources that can be shared out, or you have a specific question, please contact me at email@example.com
