For A Day Foundation
For over 20 years, For a Day Foundation (FADF) has brighten the spirits of children with cancer and other serious illnesses, by providing in-person, much-needed diversions from the strain of chronic treatment. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all in-hospital visits are currently suspended. As a result, FADF is now shipping STEAM activity kits directly to partner facilities. The single use kits provide children in the hospital with projects to engage their imagination and promote education through play. The kits are appreciated by parents as well, who are supporting their child’s remote learning while also managing their treatment. Since June, FADF has sent over 400 activity kits. This grant will help them maintain regular shipments of kits to partner facilities for the rotating pediatric population. Thank you FADF, for supporting and enriching the lives of these children!
Whatcom Family YMCA
The Whatcom Family YMCA is a stable and integral part of the community, supporting the needs of families and children. When the COVID-19 crisis began in March, the Whatcom Family YMCA provide much needed child care for families of the essential, critical workers on the frontlines. And now, as schools turn to remote learning, the Y is offering all day assisted care and learning for children across Whatcom County. Scholarship are available for those in need, to ensure students are safe while their parents work. The Y has recently launched Y-Fi, a program that offers free WiFi at their downtown site for school children and families without adequate internet at home. This grant will help offset the cost of providing these programs that support the safety and education of children in the community. Thank you Whatcom Family YMCA!
