Dear Editor,

Without a measure of doubt, the COVID19 Coronavirus has stretched us all beyond any area of comfort. It’s almost unfathomable to think that this pandemic has yet to reach its peak. Nevertheless, we cannot allow ourselves to give up or to give in. In our darkest time we must continue to stand strong even when we don’t feel up to standing. 

Our children, our families, our communities, our neighbors all rely on us to help them. I’m speaking to all of us because we must all come together as one unit for the greater good of all.

I would be remiss if I failed to salute the amazing educators, staff, cabinet members, and volunteers who have been assisting with the distribution of thousand of meals to our Paterson students. 

Let’s be clear. We will get past this. We will win. We must stand side by side with an undying faith. We must continue to support each other during this time. 

If I can be of any help to anyone please let me know immediately.

Sincerely yours in the struggle,

Corey L. Teague
