The 40 Days for 40 CANS Drive benefitting NourishPhx (formerly ICM)
Saturday, April 3, 2021 | 10:30 to Noon
Our canned food and clothing drive benefitting NourishPHX was successful thanks in part to the contactless drive through which made donation drop off seamless and safe. We also collected the following monetary donations:
$40 (grocery gift cards)
A special THANK YOU to all the volunteers for their CAN-do spirit!!
Maryland School provides educational resources for several refugee families in our community. A father from Eritrea, a country in Eastern Africa, is signing up for classes at Rio Salado Community College and is very much in need of a laptop computer in order to access his classes. He is currently using one that belongs to his teenage child, but they both need access at the same time, so it is not working out. They are a family of five people living in a small apartment, and do not have room for a regular P.C. computer.
If you have a used working laptop you are no longer using or know of someone who has one to donate or would like to contribute a monetary donation to help purchase a used laptop, please contact Cathy Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have also identified several good used MS Windows compatible laptops on Ebay for under $150 that could be purchased for the father as well as several other refugee families in the Maryland School community.
You can help Maryland School in a simple way. Make a 2020 year-end tax credit donation of $200 (single) or $400 (for couple). Their budget is stretched and even more so this year with extra expenses. A contribution would be much appreciated. July 15th is the deadline to make a 2020 donation. Download the PDF form below and make a difference!
