Kennedy Cares is a JFK PTO program in which JFK families assist other families, within our school, who may be experiencing difficult times or have exceptional needs. This program has been successful in past years because many families offer to share their resources with those in need. We hope you will welcome the opportunity to make a positive difference for a child and/or family in your own school community by either making a monetary donation or becoming a Kennedy Cares Resource Volunteer.
Below you will find a Donation/Resource Volunteer Form listing the primary areas in which assistance is needed. If you wish to help in one or more of these areas, please complete the form and return it to your child’s homeroom teacher. Forms will be kept on file throughout the current school year only. As needs arise, the school social worker will contact the Kennedy Cares Coordinator, who will then contact the volunteer(s) who have indicated a desire to help in that particular area. All donations will be grouped together to be drawn on as the school social worker and Kennedy Cares Coordinator see fit. Strict confidentiality of the resource volunteers and the families receiving the assistance will be maintained at all times.
If you have any questions, please contact our Kennedy Cares Coordinator, Jackie Blancato at firstname.lastname@example.org
. The JFK PTO thanks you for your generosity and support.
