COVID 19 UPDATE in Regards to IDCS FOUNDATION Fundraising
At this time, many of our scheduled fundraisers have been postponed but we could still use your help.
An online event’s ONLY purpose is to raise funds to support financially vulnerable IDCS families. As the entire world navigates through the COVID19 crisis, we remember to care for our school family. Our vigilant administration listens for calls for help that will surely be heard in the weeks to come.

Our director, Dr. Ellen Retelle, is remaining in contact and available for those facing potential financial trouble as a result of business cut backs and closures relating to this international crisis. She and her terrific staff are working to be sure breakfast and lunch are available for anyone who needs it. This action is critical. We also know that without a paycheck expenses quickly become unmanageable.

This is where you come in! Our community is strong and we take care of our own. Let’s circle the wagons!

Today, the IDCS Foundation begins this special fundraiser. We will start the fund with a $1,000 donation. All money raised will be distributed by Dr. Ellen to those who need funds to pay for groceries, utilities, and essentials such as diapers, feminine hygiene products, etc. Caregivers are asked to fill out a very quick form so the 3 people responsible for distribution know how to help. Identities of those who benefit from this fund will remain confidential, known only to Dr. Ellen Retelle, June Morone, and Rachel Stahl.

Please give what you can! You may use PayPal or mail a check to the school.
