This year has been unlike any other. 2020 has been the year of compounding crises and enormous suffering, coupled with the sharp reality that human beings just aren’t meant to stay six feet apart. And nowhere has the disproportionate burden of these compounding tragedies been more acute than among Allies families.
But the extraordinary challenges this year has brought have also revealed what we have known to be true all along: that there is tremendous power when love meets action, and communities activate to look out for one another. This year, Allies for Every Child has mobilized to meet the needs of the children and families we serve by adding vital basic needs supports like food, diapers, cleaning supplies, household essentials, home activity backpacks, and more. And because of our deep relationships with clients and families prior to the pandemic, our sense of community has endured this temporary new normal, and allowed our team to buoy families against an endless array of challenges. And we can do more.
