Hello ACS Community,
No doubt we are all going through challenging times, making sacrifices that may cause some anxieties amongst us. But we are also fortunate in many ways and it's important to remind ourselves of the good things we have. By verbalizing our gratitude, we can be happier people. I encourage you to find some time, before or after school, to sit as a family and list the many ways you are fortunate. I am also reaching out to our ACS community to pay forward some of what we have.
We can still give back to communities in need from the comforts of our home. There are many refugees and impoverish Jordanian families that are struggling, especially during the current pandemic lockdown in Jordan, that are barely getting by. In collaboration with the Collateral Repair Project (CRP), we would like to purchase food packages that would include rice, beans, oil, and other household food items to help families in need.
A Paypal account has been set up and will be managed by ACS with ALL donations going toward the purchase food packages for CRP. We are exploring ways to have the packages delivered to CRP and needy families.
