Dear Greensboro Academy families,
Our current realities to the COVID-19 public health crisis has impacted all of us. From missed school, to uncertain employment conditions, to fighting on the front lines, to simply missing time with extended family and friends; we are all feeling the burden of this time. We at GA are privileged to be a part of such a gracious, generous, and close community; unfortunately, some families within our community may be feeling the burden of this global pandemic more strongly than others right now.
At GA we recognize that there are families attending our school that could really use our support during this uncertain time. To this end, GA Boosters is launching a virtual giving campaign, the Emergency Support for Patriots Fund (ESP), so that we may provide GA families with financial assistance for a variety of life's necessities. Please, if you’re able, help us to create and sustain the ESP fund via Paypal to the GA Boosters PayPal link listed above. Also, please make sure to label your donation “ESP Fund”.
Please reach out to Michelle Sahol at firstname.lastname@example.org if your family’s circumstances are such that you can use GA’s support right now. Also, we are including a list of other places lending resources during this time that may be helpful for your family.
Thank you for your consideration and donation. We hope you are doing well and that we’ll see you really soon!
