Staying Busy and Entertained
Congratulations and thank for your doing your part! Staying home during this pandemic keeps both you and others safe during this time. Since most school districts across the nations have announced their closure for the remainder of the school year, some families are now needing to rely on their own resources to support and educate their children.
Whether it is needing online resources, school supplies, food, or activity ideas, our guide will direct you towards the resources available for you and your family.

Free Resources for Families in Need
This pandemic unexpectedly forced many business and schools to close their doors and let employees go. This affected most families across the nation by leaving them without a source of income. Discontinued school programs that daily supplied resources and food to children at school now leave some families struggling to afford basic needs. Not to worry, there are a vast amount of charities and organizations whose mission is to supply families with food and supplies.
