Over the past few weeks, our school social worker has spoken with many families that are really struggling to make ends meet and are in critical situations. At the same time, she's also heard from some of our parents who received P-EBT cards but really do not need them for their personal use. To try to address both of these things, we will be having a food drive over the next two weeks to stock our Flora Food Pantry. This food is available to families connected to the Flora cluster, and the school social worker will distribute it on an as-needed basis.
How can you help? Donate! There will be a shopping cart outside the main office over the next two weeks where you can drop off non-perishable foods during your work day. You can also help by spreading the word in the community since communication is more challenging this year.
Please contact Celita Hastie with any questions or concerns. And, as always, please feel free to contact her about students and families you are concerned about, or give them her email/phone so they can contact her directly.
