Urgent Request to Help Our Students
Dear Friends,

Many of you who received this email on Wednesday have already given generously to get grocery gift cards into the hands of our students and their families - thank you !

For those of you who haven't had the opportunity to make a gift yet, I'm resending with the message that it's not too late to help our students get the groceries and essentials they need during this crisis. Read below to learn about an urgent request that will provide tremendous support to our local Sonoma Valley students and their families.  

The approximately 60% of students in Sonoma Valley schools who receive free or reduced breakfasts and lunches at school may have a very difficult time accessing those meals during the school closure. While our school district is planning to provide pick-up meals for those students, families will still need additional groceries and essentials.

Your donation today will provide $50 gift cards to school families in need so they can buy groceries and other important needs while schools are closed. Click here to make your gift now!

The Sonoma Valley Education Foundation is working directly with Safeway, Sonoma Market, Whole Foods and Glen Ellen Market to purchase gift cards at a discounted rate so we can provide them to families in need. We thank these SVEF grocery partners who will generously make your gift go further in helping families buy much-needed food in the coming weeks.
 
Please consider giving a gift today to help local students and their families buy groceries and essentials during this crisis. Together we can support our students during these uncertain times. Please click below to make your gift.

 With gratitude,

Mary Favaro
Executive Director
