It’s hard to believe that 2 years have passed since COVID-19 first upended life as we knew it in Bucks and Montgomery Counties. What began as a global yet still distant concern, quickly became a new reality and a present fear for us in March of 2020. In the years that have passed since, we have learned more about COVID-19, taken steps to combat the illness and found an unending ability to adapt for public health and personal safety. We have found strength in each other while not being “with” each other, and we have been reminded again and again how lucky so many of us are.
At the R.J. Leonard Foundation, the past two years have been a constant lesson in gratitude as you - our community - have stepped forward repeatedly to support our Fellows through ups and downs we could not have predicted 24 months ago. You have helped our Fellows’ children have the supplies they need for virtual and in-person school years; you have contributed to tuition payments and rental emergencies; and you have never once questioned the need.
Thank you for weathering this storm with us. We would not be making it through without you.
