Dear Friends,

With the uncertainty we are currently facing due to the COVID-19 virus, many of our students face the possibility of losing access to vital supports and resources. I’d like to share with you the steps Care to Learn is taking to ensure that we continue to meet students’ health, hunger, and hygiene needs during Spring Break and throughout any potential school closures.

• Care to Learn always has, and will continue to plan for regularly scheduled school holidays such as Spring Break, and provides students with additional food, clothing, and hygiene resources prior to the beginning of these breaks.
• We are currently working with partners throughout the community to extend our reach and ensure that we remain in contact with students and families and are able to meet any needs resulting from prolonged school closures.
• In the face of these extraordinary circumstances, Care to Learn remains committed to providing immediate assistance to meet the emergent health, hunger, and hygiene needs of students.

While the news and our knowledge of the COVID-19 virus is continually evolving, the one thing we know for certain is that our students need our support now more than ever. The best way you can support our students is by visiting www.caretolearn.org/donate, making a donation, and spreading the word to all those interested in helping.

Thank you for all you do to support our students. Because you care, our students can learn!
