We are all hearing from a wide range of organizations right now about their response to COVID-19. And we want to know how we can help.
The Foundation for Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) and Impact on Education are stepping up to help support students and schools in unprecedented ways, focusing their efforts in these three places:
• Many students rely on school for breakfast, lunch, and weekend nutrition. Impact on Education is working closely with BVSD Food Services to line up volunteers to assemble bags that will be distributed to families in need next week across our community.
• In the event that school closures extend beyond spring break, we are getting tens of thousands of school supplies and backpacks ready to be used to support ongoing learning among students without access to technology.
• Once this is all behind us and kids are back in school, Impact on Education is looking for creative ways to fund after school/weekend enrichment to help our kids catch up and make sure that the gap in learning doesn’t become a permanent deficit.

Thank you, Daily Camera readers, for helping our students!
