A Note from Simon
I hope this message finds you safe as we all do our best to cope with the challenges and opportunities we are facing. While there are many bright spots we are sharing with you in this edition of our newsletter, there are also modifications to our services that we have had to make.
We suspended our in-person early childhood program services last week and will resume in-person when it is safe to do so. We continue to work with parents virtually and have prepared lessons and learning activities that can be done at home. We continue to provide curbside delivery of snack packs, diapers, food, and hygiene products. For our seniors, the curbside distribution of commodities and food, in partnership with St. Timothy's, is going very well.
We are now in the virtual portion of Camp Good Sam as in-person Camp ended after four weeks. We have prepared toolkits for at-home use by parents and students and continue with our virtual learning classrooms. Finally, we are beginning to rewrite and modify curriculum for all of our programs for the upcoming school year.
Essential operations continue at our main office locations in Brownsville and San Antonio, with proper social distancing and staggered schedules for administrative and program staff.
We are grateful for your support and will continue to do our utmost to serve and protect our clients and staff to the greatest extent possible.
