Meet Rayven! On the left is a photo of when he began CYD in 2009, and on the right he is a senior in high school!
Nearly 100% of our students are eligible to receive free breakfast, lunch, and supper from their school. Because of the arrival of Covid-19 in our community, Atlanta Public Schools (APS) will be closed beginning March 16 indefinitely. APS will distribute food Monday through Friday from 10am until noon from several school locations. Worried that our most vulnerable families will be unable to find transportation, leave work or their children unattended at home during that time period, we are planning to supplement APS’s plan with grocery gift cards for families. Food insecurity will be at an all time high during this crisis, and we will need your help to provide the vital food and other provisions necessary during this time.
In the note field please write in “grocery gift card”, so we can make sure you receive a thank you letter from a CYD child!
