A LETTER FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, BONNIE MICHELLE CANNON
We are just beginning week 4 of school closures and The Center’s Call to Action for our kids and families. As you know, the families we serve are economically fragile. Over half our families have lost income.
This is a CRISIS and we are asking for your help now and for our future.
Our food pantry is operating smoothly and serving our families twice a week. This past week we were able to provide food for 25 families, which is 82 individuals. The families have been very grateful for the help in this difficult time.
Thirty of our After-School kids are now participating in our on-line learning. Only 10 were connected he first week. All but one, now have a computer on loan at home, and we have only a few more homes in need of internet. Thank you, Altice and Bridgehampton School District.
families, I was able to individually connect with our teens, their families and our college students to assess their needs. Eleven families need food. This includes 56 individuals. 22 have lost income, some households all their income.
$300 will feed a family of 4 for one week
$500 provide certified individual on-line tutoring
$1,000 can provide one of our families with their own computer
Pledge towards The Center’s Emergency Fund
PLEASE SUPPORT OUR MISSION
Stay Safe. Peace and Blessings,
