SPEF's COVID-19 Helping Hands Initiatives
SPEF is proud to launch Helping Hands, a series of initiatives we are delivering in response to COVID-19's impact on students and families in our community.
Two Helping Hands initiatives are currently underway, Grab and Go Meals and Home Work Helpers. Thank you to the many who have volunteered to assist with Grab and Go Meals, distributing breakfast, lunch, and dinner to Stamford Public Schools students. Since March 13th, nearly 200 community volunteers submitted inquiries to SPEF, with approximately a quarter of those completing the application process. As of April 22, 104,538 meals have been distributed. SPEF volunteers have filled an average of 57 volunteer shifts per week since April 6, totaling approximately 575 hours of service!
Starting this week, SPEF and The Ferguson Library are partnering to launch Home Work Helpers, providing free, online, interactive academic help for students in grade levels K-12, Monday—Friday.
