MS88PTA COVID-19 Aid to School Community THANKYOU

To our MS 88 Family and Friends,

We reach out to you on behalf of our students’ families and the broader community who have been hurt by the Covid-19 Pandemic. Many of our hard working families who live paycheck to paycheck are struggling more than ever to meet basic family needs, like putting groceries on the table. When compounded by grief and loss and the costs of medical and/or funeral services, we find families in crisis. 

The primary goal of the MS 88 PTA has always been to support and uplift our students and families. At this moment in history it is more important and urgent than ever. 

As the school has navigated the remote learning space to ensure contact and meaningful communication with all students and families, they have found that the community’s greatest needs range from groceries, to school equipment, to medical expenses, and to burial costs.  For students to continue learning, their families basic needs for food and well-being must first be met.  As the crisis in our community continues and the weeks go on, the level of need will exceed the PTA's limited financial ability to address this with our current funds. 

On behalf of the PTA Board, we ask those who can financially support our families through this crisis to make a donation as part of our GoFundMe campaign. All funds will be deposited directly into the PTA account and used to provide funds to families in need for groceries, health and/or burial costs.   The MS 88 administrative staff will provide guidance so that we can direct help where needed.

Thank you so much for your kindness, generosity and support. Know that it makes a huge difference in the lives of our communities during these troubling times.   Any amount you can give towards this initiative would be greatly appreciated! Please pass on to everyone you know!

We can make it - together!
