Helping IS126 Families during COVID-19
PTA and ZONE 126 are identifying families who have fallen on tough times during the COVID-19 pandemic. Some of them are not qualified for any government assistance.
PTA is also establishing a formal partnership with The Connected Chef's Life Line whose mission is to "provide delivered groceries boxes to families in Western Queens, NYC, who are currently affected by the economic impacts of COVID-19." Through LifeLine, $30 will afford a box of grocery that feeds a family of 4 for a week.
With approval of its membership, PTA can use its fund, in addition to any donation (see below), to sponsor free groceries to help our fellow IS126 parents for as many number of weeks as the fund would allow. You may choose to donate directly to LifeLine. However, the donation made directly through PTA will be used to target and sponsor IS126 families.
Here are ways to help:
PTA accepts donation via PayPal(with fee) via firstname.lastname@example.org
Or Venmo @PTAofIS126 (no fee)
VOLUNTEER: Sign upto do contact-free grocery delivery on Tuesdays or Thursdays
