Dear Cluster Families,
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to challenge us every day -- physically, socially, emotionally and for many in our city, financially. Families across DC, including in our community, are struggling as the crisis unfolds each week.
The Cluster PTA -- in close consultation with Principal Bell, Principal Comeforo, and our amazing team of social workers -- would like to launch a campaign specifically to help our Cluster families in need.
Starting today, we are asking for families to consider making a small contribution to a Go Fund Me account that will directly help families in April and May including paying bills, buying groceries and medicine, and other daily essentials. (Please note that while the PTA has facilitated setting up the fund, our administrators and family support team will be making the donation decisions.)
Before she passed away, our PTA President Maeve McKean was researching and encouraging us to set up this fund to help our community. Maeve was passionate about community service and helping those in need throughout her life. In her memory, we would like to name this donation campaign the Maeve McKean Cluster Cares Fund.
A contribution of any size would be welcome.
The PTA Senior Team
Lona, Alexis, Jennifer, Alison, Jessica, Katie and Zach
