What is The Fund For Vulnerable Children?
Covid-19 has caused hardships. Many children in Aurora who rely on the bookmobile for resources and are already at risk for school success now face additional challenges. To help these children and families, we formed partnerships with the Aurora Area Interfaith Food Pantry and the Marie Wilkinson Food Pantry. The food pantries reach our most vulnerable children with books, crafts and literacy tools. To date, more than 8,000 packets have been delivered and another 2,200 are underway. Feedback from the pantries is that parents/caretakers are using the dual language materials with their children and, if English is their second language, for themselves!
