A Special THANK YOU to all who have contributed to our on-going COVID-19 Relief Campaign!
As of Monday May 11 we have collected over $11,000 for rent relief! We are so appreciative of all of those who have pledged so far to help those most affected by the on-going pandemic. If you are able to do so, there are still open slots starting in amounts as small as $25. Please go to our Sign-Up Genius for more information and to sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040a4cadab2da5f85-rent
Amazon Wish List
Thanks to all who have shopped from our Amazon Wish List for diapers, wipes, school supplies, and baby gear. So far we have been able to make 9 complete school packets and are hoping to make 20 more this week. Lots of diapers in all sizes have also been received and will be distributed to families in need. The list has been updated as we find out from Abingdon staff what is needed most. If you are able to do so, please go to our Amazon Wish List to help with this effort.
Grocery Store Gift Cards
We have received $250 in gift cards since last week. Thanks so much to all who have contributed! They will be used to purchase food for families in need in addition to the money budgeted by the Abingdon PTA last week. We are still looking for gift cards as we begin shopping for food pantry supplies. Please mail any gift cards to the Abingdon Elementary PTA, P.O. Box 6405, Arlington, VA 22206.
The COVID-19 pandemic has hit many of our most vulnerable Abingdon families hard. We know that our community’s needs are great and that they will be ongoing for months. The Abingdon PTA’s goal is to complement the many services provided by APS, Arlington County, and non-profit organizations in hopes that families will no longer be in crisis. Again, thanks to all those who have helped us in this effort. It would not be possible without your generosity.
Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if there is anything else you or your family need at this time. We are here for you even if school isn’t in session and eager to help in any way we can.
