The impact of Covid 19 will eventually be behind us, but for children with cancer, the struggle will continue. Our team is working from home and video conferencing on a weekly basis. Our Executive Director Joann Passantino, and the entire staff, are working diligently to make sure ECF keeps our doors open. All of our services are still available but with adjustments for the safety of staff, volunteers and our ECF kids.
We are currently sending out gift cards to replace actual food deliveries and for children's birthdays. While our caseworkers are unable to go into the homes at this time they are still available 24/7 via phone and video conference for our kids with cancer and their families. And we are still helping the families with emergency bill assistance, and doing whatever we can to ease their burdens.
Unfortunately, all of our fundraisers have been postponed and each of us is working on new dates to host events before the end of the year. Hopefully, we all come out on the other side of this pandemic soon.
To our followers, take good care of yourself and your families, but most of all, thank you very much for your support, kindness and caring during this difficult time.
