Covid-19 was hard for everybody. But, it is particularly hard for those that were already financially struggling. During the first few weeks of COVID-19, we found that the children and families of our Joyful Learning Children’s program were struggling. While most parents lost jobs and had no way to supply for their family, children still had to eat. When we found out about this, we initiated a Food Assistance Fundraiser. While we continued to support the families until now, from June 10th, we are able to provide a steady source of groceries for a while. Although the New Jersey stay-at-home executive order was partially lifted, the situations of the families do not instantly get better. To support the full recovery of the families, with the donors and supporters we are able to ensure a safe place for the children to grow. Thank you, donors, and supporters.
