Washington, DC

From an email: “Garfield Elementary School is a vibrant school community located in Ward 8. With the decision by DCPS to extend distance learning and end the school year early, some of Garfield’s families are struggling with issues such as food insecurity, childcare, and healthcare needs. While we have been working hard to connect families with available resources, some need more immediate and direct assistance. One of Garfield’s community partners has started a GoFundMe to help the families during this incredibly difficult time. As a volunteer at Garfield for many years, I can tell you that these children come to school every day excited and ready to learn! They are doing a great job adapting to the new normal, but some are in need of their neighbors to step in and give them a helping hand at this time. Please consider donating here.”
