The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented need for our community. Older foster youth living on their own are experiencing food insecurity, job loss, and budgeting shortfalls. Many youth work essential jobs that require personal protective equipment to keep themselves and their community protected. Foster families have encountered higher grocery bills, an increased need for reliable internet & technology, and a greater need for cleaning supplies to keep their homes safe. With the help of generous community support, CASA/Prince George’s County was able to distribute these crucial items on Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service to youth and foster families in need. Special thanks to members of Kappa Alpha Theta for volunteering their time on distribution day!
Thanks to these generous supporters for helping others in our community:
Agape Community Church, Alfred Street Baptist Church, Governor’s Office on Crime Prevention and Youth Services, Greenbelt Community Church, Kappa Alpha Theta, Stockings for Karen, Vesta, Inc., and individual donors.
