As the world battles the COVID-19 pandemic, physical separation right now will keep us safe. However, emotional separation has the potential to do great damage. We need each other now more than ever.
So although we can't be face-to-face right now, I'd like to ensure we stay heart-to-heart and continue to serve our most vulnerable communities at the Tim Griffith Foundation.
Here are steps we’re taking to ensure those most vulnerable are safe, served and connected during this unprecedented time.
1. We’re connecting with Meadowlark parents via both email and video conference calls
2. We are poised to help with our at risk high school students as they adjust to remote classes.
3. We are in communication with the Service League of San Mateo County in order to ensure our Tim’s House residents have the support they require.
4. We are connecting with the students we support through TGF university scholarships to see what additional support they may need such as funds for tutoring and food that they did receive on campus. Distance learning can be difficult, and is exacerbated by their own separations from the families they love. We will continue to support their aspirations to continue to succeed in furthering their education.
The needs of our community will increase over the coming weeks and possibly months. We are committed to serving and supporting them - please help us by considering a gift to help us continue to secure their essential needs - including urgently needed supplies at Tim’s House. I know this is an uncertain time for all of us, and it’s essential we commit to come to each other’s aid.
As we all know, grief, the devastation of addiction and violence continue, despite so much of life being put on hold. And they only intensify when the normal aspects of life are disrupted.
And this is the case for so many of those you help serve at the Tim Griffith Foundation. Thank you for continuing to support these most vulnerable in our society.
We will continue to update you and rely on our TGF family for support as we stay heart to heart during this difficult time.
