Helpful Links and Our Response to COVID-19

Mar 13, 2020

To all our Tuesday’s Children families and friends,

We want to acknowledge that this time of uncertainty and the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the U.S. and around the globe is affecting us all in varied ways.

As an organization, we have considered the safety of those we serve, our staff, and our valued partners and have decided to postpone the following activities and will announce new dates as soon as possible:

Gold Star Mothers Retreat, Sheboygan, WI – 3/18-21

Nature’s Bounty Day of Service, NY – 3/24

Plandome Benefit, NY – 3/26

Take Our Children to Work Day, Washington, DC – 3/31

Take Our Children to Work Day, New York, NY – 4/23

Take Our Children to Work Day, Cambridge, MA – 4/24

Take Our Children to Work Day, Los Angeles, CA – 5/2

Kentucky Derby Fundraiser – 5/2

Piping Rock Club Golf Outing – 5/27

The welfare of our families, supporters and community is our top priority. We will continue to assess the situation on a weekly basis and make additional rescheduling determinations as needed.

We know that news reports and this ever-evolving situation can be anxiety provoking. Please remember that in times like this, credible information is a valuable asset. We encourage all our families to take necessary precautions to prevent infection and exposure for themselves and their loved ones.

Even as we all practice the recommendations of “social distancing” and other preventative measures to limit the spread of coronavirus, please know Tuesday’s Children staff remains available to you and your family.

Tuesday’s Children remains committed to supporting and fostering long-term healing for our families. As we all know, grief in and of itself is isolating and the present situation is further isolating. To combat the isolation, keep families connected, and further healing, we are increasing online programming.

Best regards and good health!

The Tuesday’s Children Team
