Our entire community is still dealing with dramatic changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During this difficult time, many Wallingford-Swarthmore School District (WSSD) students and families are facing loss of income, health issues, and unplanned expenses related to COVID-19, all of which create financial and emotional hardship. Working closely with Wallingford-Swarthmore School District leaders, the Foundation for Wallingford-Swarthmore Schools is actively assessing opportunities to help.The Foundation provided an initial donation in the amount of $5,000 to WSSD social workers, who have a direct line to district families struggling with these unplanned expenses. To provide more help, we launched the Foundation for Wallingford-Swarthmore Schools - COVID-19 Relief Fund to support district students and their families. The Foundation will continue to work with WSSD to identify needs and deploy monies raised through the Foundation for Wallingford-Swarthmore Schools - COVID-19 Relief Fund to help WSSD students and their families meet basic needs through these unprecedented, difficult times.
