Green Chimneys Executive Director wrote the following letter
to the community and Green Chimneys supporters
As we all look forward to putting the last few months and COVID-19 behind us, I hope this finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy.
While most schools closed outright, Green Chimneys continued serving students and their families. Though many students returned to their homes, some of our more severely challenged kids remained on campus. Our staff took every recommended precaution in working with them. And we’ve stayed in close contact with those who returned home through online communication.
Basically, we haven’t missed a beat.
But the challenges of these last few months have severely strained our resources. And our students and animals need you now more than ever. That’s why we launched the COVID-19 Relief Fund.
I am so grateful for your support in the past, and I hope you can make a gift today.
Edward W. Placke, Ed.D.
