After hearing story after story of how Coast Guard families are being negatively affected by the federal shutdown, Tabor Academy librarian Ann Richard took her concern and put it into action, contacting the Cape Cod Military Support Foundation to ask how the Tabor community might help.
When she learned that the greatest need is for toiletries, baby food, wipes, diapers, along with other non-perishables, Richard and the library staff placed collection boxes in the Stroud Academic Center lobby and at the Hayden Library’s rear entrance. The boxes are already filling, and today students got into the act, sharing the need at All School Meeting. A press release was issued to invite our local community to participate. As word spreads, we know our community can help make a difference to these local families.
Whatever is collected will be delivered to Don Cox at the Cape Cod Military Support Foundation and distributed to local families beginning Friday, January 25, and on an ongoing basis until the shutdown is over.
We appreciate Ms. Richard’s initiative and care. Her example shows how each of us can do something to help others in need, and how enlisting others can increase our impact. We hope our actions communicate our gratitude and support for the individuals who help keep us safe and sound!
We will celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. during our Saturday School Day with an Emmy award-winning television producer, public speaker, and peace advocate, followed by small group discussions.
