GRANTEE SPOTLIGHT

Chester Eastside shared the following update "COVID-19 has forced Chester Eastside, like other agencies, to alter the way we deliver our services, but not our commitment to those whose needs are basic and have been exacerbated by the ongoing pandemic. General operating funding from TCF’s City of Chester grant allowed us to make those changes.

CEI addressed, and continues to address, the most difficult ramifications of COVID. In creating Virtual Out of School Time (OST), we continued to offer our children the same academic support and commitment of our on-site program. We were able to return in-person this summer for Camp Phoenix and the fall after-school program. Should the need arise to resume an online configuration, or incorporate portions into a hybrid model, the format has been established.

CEI’s income-based Hunger Safety Net has experienced a 40% increase, coupled with additional requests through Emergency Food. The more than 100,000 meals offered annually by our all-encompassing Food Ministry has grown significantly and neither aspect shows signs of declining need."

SCHOLAR SPOTLIGHT

We received a lovely update from TCF Scholar Megan McLouglin ('18) "I am a current senior at The University of Tennessee! I have thoroughly enjoyed nursing school and feel bittersweet about the end coming near. I am currently looking for ED/Trauma job opportunities. I worked as a nurse extern in the Riddle Hospital ED this past summer and loved it! I have dreams of living and working in either Denver or New York City after graduation. While I am excited and love to work in the ED, I hope in the future I can transition to a job in women’s health as I have taken a mom/ baby course this semester and found it extremely interesting. This has inspired me to want to make a positive impact on other women and empower them through their health. I just want to thank you for continually supporting myself and others through nursing school and helping make our dreams come true! Your impact will never be forgotten!"
