We had a great discussion with Laura Hartman, Family Resource Director at Squires Elementary. We've been working with Laura for several years to help supply food bags to children and families, and we're currently taking food donations to help out with food bags through the end of the year.
There are so many great services offered by our public schools, and family resource centers are important points of contact to meet the needs of children and their families in our community. Family resource centers provide a variety of services from prenatal and preschool assistance to family literacy support and food assistance.
During the pandemic the needs of many people in our community intensified and family resource directors like Laura went above and beyond to care for their students by delivering food, wifi hotspots, and more.
If you'd like to help, food donations are always welcome. And now with COVID restrictions easing, there are more opportunities to volunteer at our schools as well.
