I have the privilege of teaching English as a Second Language to adults in the Marysville/Yuba City area. There are around 80 students enrolled in our morning and evening ELD classes. My students are some of the kindest, most dedicated, and hardest-working people that I have ever met. Many of them work hourly jobs in addition to coming to English class, and are no longer able to earn an income due to COVID-19 closures. In addition, it can be harder for them to access community resources because of the language barrier. Would you consider giving any amount to help provide basic necessities for families who are in need? Any money that is donated will go to provide Walmart gift cards to students who are unable to work during this time and need extra help to provide their family with groceries. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
