A wise person said... 'the true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members'.
March 13, 2020 will go down as a historical date for all of us! It marked the beginning of an unimaginable period!
In a matter of hours, school staff mobilized to organize and deliver school materials, food and other essentials to our most needy families!
In a matter of days, parents who had never before utilized technology were assisted and learned how to connect with their children's school!
In a matter of weeks, most of our Latino families were receiving food deliveries from the West High Area Collaborative!
Month after month, families in need were supported with school materials, food, utilities & rent assistance, winter gear, Christmas gifts, and more!
It was a challenging year for all of us, a year of many losses! And unquestionably, the one thing that was never lost, was the sense of fellowship! As we begin to ease back into the normal, one thing is evident... this community never left its most needy families behind! They were lifted along the way with much care and the utmost respect.
Thank you Franklin/Randall staff, PTO representatives, and community members in general!
In the name of the Latino PEG we say, MUCHAS GRACIAS A TODOS!
