The COVID-19 pandemic has been a tremendous challenge for afterschool programs across our state. Our partner, Operation Shoestring, has temporarily suspended its in-person services. Despite this suspension, the organization’s staff, board, and volunteers are working to ensure that Shoestring’s more than 300 children and youth and their families have access to nutrition and fun, engaging learning resources with virtual summer camp.
Thank you, Operation Shoestring, for your efforts to continue to uplift children and families in Central Jackson. This work significantly contributes to creating a bright future for our entire state.
