5.21.2020: CONGRATULATIONS! We've exceeded our $25k goal, ensuring families will receive weekly baskets through the end of June! Due to your incredible generosity and time, we have distributed 920 food and health baskets to 125 families (including 223 children). The Fund's success could not have been achieved without YOU. Let us continue working together to ensure that the community receives much-needed support through the summer. Join us June 1 as we kickstart our summer campaign.
We are all affected during this COVID-19 crisis. Children and families struggling before the crisis are now even more vulnerable as they suffer from food insecurity issues, and lack proper health, hygiene and PPE (personal protective equipment).
There are very real and tangible needs you can support to alleviate suffering here at the Garvey School District. Please donate to the Garvey Education Foundation COVID-19 FAMILY RELIEF FUND and help save children and families affected by COVID-19.
Your monetary donation will enable GEF to provide food, PPE, health and hygiene items to the highest-need families in the community. We have already seen an outpouring of support from employees, parents, organizations, and the community who have volunteered their time and/or donated to the fund. We are incredibly grateful for their generosity and support during this crisis!

Founded in 2005, the Garvey Education Foundation was created to enhance and strengthen academic programs and extracurricular activities in the Garvey School District. The Foundation also encourages involvement from the entire Garvey community. One of the major activities of the Foundation is the award of mini-grants to staff members for enhancing core curriculum projects, after-school activities, and initiatives that challenge students to reach high academic standards. Generous donations from corporate partners, community leaders and staff are making these grants possible. Learn more: https://www.garvey.k12.ca.us/apps/pages/gef
