Here’s our Amazon WISH LIST of things we need, but feel free to get items elsewhere too! BJs, Best Buy, Staples, WB Mason, WalMart, and many others, especially local businesses, allow you to purchase items on line. Either ship to us directly, or drop them off on the front porch of the Club! Just let us know what you are getting so we can adjust the list! We need your help to re-open! In order to continue to serve our kids In a COVID-19 world, we have to purchase new equipment that can be easily sanitized, provide separate supplies for every kid, give them access to technology, and provide PPE to use as part of our daily operations. The MOST IMMEDIATE NEED is for the 6’ resin folding tables and chromebooks since the kids will be contained to one space and can’t share equipment.https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/31A89TG9ZAEXQ?ref=cm_sw_em_r_wl_mw_UuJizv1xQ7jU8&fbclid=IwAR27czunEfU7qOl4QBgXmHgyPddD8qM8DVf07b738vZUBHJm1VzWpjqnDgg NJ We can’t do this without you! Reopening and dealing with COVID19 is going to cost significantly more than what comes in to us as revenue, and the changes are being mandated by the state.
