Food Fundraiser for TCN Families

Please join us in raising money to support 80 families in the Think College Now (TCN) community affected by the COVID-19 school closure. Our goal is to be able to deliver grocery store gift cards to families in need, but we have to work together!

Think College Now  is a 'college-prep' public elementary school serving students and families living in the Fruitvale District of Oakland, California.

As teachers and staff have been supporting families with distance learning, we have learned that there are families in very high need for food during this pandemic crisis. In order to meet our students academic needs, we have to ensure our students health and safety needs are met first.

Although there are meal programs set up through OUSD and the Alameda County Food Bank for families to pick up meals twice a week, it is not enough for a family that has lost their job during this crisis and do not have any means of income. 

With school closed due to COVID-19 until summer, many children run the risk of going hungry. At least 10 families from each grade at TCN depend on the School Breakfast Program and the National School Lunch Program as their sources of nutrition. 

We understand it is a difficult time for everyone, but we also know the incredible generosity and strength of our TCN community when we work together.

The Oakland Public Education Fund  understands the needs of the TCN families and will generously be matching every donation up to $5,000! 

If you are someone who has the ability to donate at this time, please consider making a contribution. Any amount will help!

If you cannot donate at this time, you can still help!  Share this fundraising page with friends and family or on your social media.

We will post updates on TCN's Facebook page @ThinkCollegeNow .
