While all of our in-person programs were cancelled mid-March due to COVID-19, we've remained dedicated to providing free literacy resources to families. Many of our young writers and their families have been deeply impacted by the pandemic. We've provided individualized support, books, writing packets and art supplies. We launched a YouTube channel with weekly writing lessons and a new program called Writing On The Wall which provides weekly writing prompts and materials for students to publish their responses, no internet or computer required. Funds raised on GiveNOLA Day sustain our community of young writers.
