Hello Family and Friends

As you know I work with the underserved families in the Monument Corridor and Bay Point communities. These families have been hit hard by this crisis. Most of the parents are restaurant workers, housekeepers, gardeners and low-level members of the work force. They live from paycheck to paycheck. With the schools closed and parents out of work, there is often no money for basics. Many have not gotten paid from the last pay period because of lack of money from businesses on the edge. It's very bleak for the underserved. But we can help!

My students and I are working to bring food to the most needy. Our goal is reach 75 families per week.

Contact White Pony Express to learn how you can donate food, funds and especially your time:

  • Bags of rice - brown or white
