Loving Our City
Dear Faith Community,
What an unprecedented time in our lives! Daily we are struggling to juggle both mental and physical health as well as social and physical distancing. This is most certainly true for our school system. We have heard from many educators and administrators that trying to navigate this unchartered territory is leaving school staff feeling overwhelmed, discouraged and even fearful.
There is something that you and/or your congregation can do! We are looking to provide a Fall Semester Blessing for each staff member in every school possible! This SignupGenius lists most of the public schools within the greater Tucson area. We are asking that people and/or individuals sign up for 1 or more schools and deliver something to the entire staff at that school. If funds allow, it might be a $5 gift card for McDonalds, Starbucks, etc. or catering a lunch for the staff. If funds are tighter it might mean some of the simple ideas for treats shown in the attachment below. We have listed the estimated number of total staff at each school - but please call the school to verify that number and coordinate delivery times.
The task is simple, the need is great. Simply:
1) Sign up for the school(s) of your choice
2) Purchase and prepare the items you will be bringing,
3) Call the school to set up a delivery time (or to coordinate a catered meal). We are asking that all items, gift cards and/or a meal take place this semester.
If you are bringing items - please have your items in a box or bags that might be able to be held for a few days in their office to make sure that no lingering germs might be attached before the school passes them out to their staff. NO HOME MADE GOODIES OR TREATS ALLOWED.
If the school you would like to bless is already taken, we encourage you to pick a school that is not being blessed before doubly blessing a school.
Thank you - and feel free to pass this link on to other like-hearted individuals. We are blessed to be a blessing!
