While Warwick families are out of work, don’t let them run out of food.
Kids found it stressful enough to learn online instead of in class when schools were closed this past year. The last thing they needed to worry about was getting enough to eat.
That’s why the Warwick Education Foundation pitched in to help this past April. We donated $5,000 to the food pantry run by Lititz Warwick Community Chest.
Normally, we’d be using the $5,000 we raised through an online auction in March for extra academic enrichment in the schools. But the times are anything but normal.
So we thought beyond funding reading programs and scientific instrument, computer software and iPads.
Sometimes a great learning tool is a bowl of cereal with peaches and milk.
One donation like ours supplies about 100 families with items that are included with each delivery.
Since the coronavirus hit our state, over 1.5 million Pennsylvanians have filed for unemployment. Our community has not been spared. Not surprisingly, our local food bank has seen demand rise rapidly.
Warwick needs neighbors who have food to spare to share with those who are hurting.
Strong communities take care of their neighbors. Thank you for helping Warwick stay strong.
