The john j. Lydon help fund removes hurdles to meeting those needs.
From July 2019 through June 2020, funds were granted to assist with:
273 requests averaging $135 each were granted over one year, totaling more than $35,000.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the average requests granted in a 3-month span increased by 300%.
Over the next 12 months, groceries, housing, and utilities are predicted to account for 90% of requests.
With each passing day in 2020, the students and families we serve are facing complexities in their daily life that are requiring more resources than ever.
