Fairfax Futures is participating in #GivingTuesdayNow, a global movement of generosity, to spur our community to action. Virginia Governor Ralph Northam has deemed child care an essential function and early childhood programs across Fairfax County are open and serving children of essential personnel. As more families are able to return to work, the availability of child care services will be an even greater necessity.
“Our hearts are with everyone who has been affected by the coronavirus outbreak,” says Cathy Lange, Fairfax Futures Chairman. “Like so many other industries, this pandemic has shed light on the critical need and value that early childhood educators bring to our community. Your support will assist these programs, many operating on small budgets, as they continue preparing our young learners for school and life.”
This #GivingTuesdayNow, please consider donating to support early childhood educators. Your donation will be used to meet the needs of early childhood educators as their programs continue to serve children and families as well as re-open for services. We also know that the need for cleaning supplies is significant, so if you have items, such as hand soap, paper towels, toilet paper, disinfectant wipes, disinfectant spray, bleach, hand sanitizer and/or disposable gloves, please contact Sallyann Bergh at firstname.lastname@example.org for details on how to donate.
Those interested in supporting early childhood educators through Fairfax Futures’ #GivingTuesdayNow efforts can make a donation here.
Our mission continues to be school readiness for children, but we also deeply care about the well-being of you and your loved ones. We hope you are safe and healthy, and we want you to know that we are all in this together!
