Teacher Fund - Le Village

It's time to implement Phase 3 of our Coronavirus plan. As daycares across the city begin closing their doors over the next several days, we too will be following suit. Beginning Monday, 3/23 only Co-Working will be available here at Le Village. We will miss every tiny face here.  

We are hopeful that this is a very temporary closure to a portion of our program. Many may wonder why we have remained open as long as we have, but as countless articles have noted, childcare facilities have gotten little to no help or direction. To make it more concerning, we are not a state-supported school. We must wait for measures and support that all small businesses are seeking. But that is not my biggest worry right now. The thing that keeps me up at night is how our staff is going to financially withstand this pandemic.

Most are recent college graduates or transplants that have not worked in Illinois for the period of time required for unemployment. I am doing everything in my own power to take care of them, giving them hours as work allows, but I came to the realization last night that I can't do it alone. As more and more people are putting their memberships on hold, I am asking openly for your help to take care of them. I know that everyone is trying to take care of their own families, but if you have anything extra to help them keep their heads above water during this difficult time, I know their families will be ever grateful. Every cent will go to them. Please feel free to share in your own networks - grandma, grandpa, aunts and uncles. 

We are a small community but a mighty one. As a friend recently said, humanity may have gotten us into this mess, but it is humanity that will get us out.
