Efforts to continue to restore and support childrens programs after Hurricane Irma continue. In this quarter, we have shifted to trying to encourage a preschool to open, run by the local Baptist church, and have committed to paying for supplies and some work to refurbish an existing building. We plan to spend at least $25,000 from some current donations, including this grant proceeds .
Closing down the schools and doing Stay at Home for the COVID virus has slowed down these efforts, but we are continuing what we can. We are also helping children get Kindles and other resources and child sized cloth masks for reopening planned for Monday May 4th, under strict mask and small group only setttings.
We are also using this time to try to put together the fundraising package to purchase a transportation van for the Dynamic Dancers to improve transportation for children in Coral Bay and on St. John to special events and classes. We need about $50,000 to purchase it. Ideas?
