Enrichment To Go
In response to COVID-19, The Enrichment Alliance is partnering with area food pantries and local toy stores to provide enriching materials to families with limited financial resources. Research indicates that inequal access to enriching activities outside school substantially contributes to the achievement gap. It is expected that even after communities begin to open again, programs that typically serve low-income children will face significant challenges with re-opening, so we hope to continue this initiative through during the re-opening phase. There are two ways to support support our efforts:
- Donate directly to The Enrichment Alliance, and we’ll purchase materials at Alakazam and Shenanigans. On the donation form, indicate that your purchase is for Enrichment to Go.
- Purchase materials through our registry at Shenanigans, Type EAVA under code at check out for a 10% discount. Your purchases will be held at the store for scheduled deliveries to participating programs.
Of course, our work existed before the pandemic and it will go on when the pandemic ends. Your undesignated donations will be applied where needed most, as we continue to address inequities in experiences that enrich lives and build strong futures.
The Enrichment Alliance is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit. A copy of our financial records is available through the department of Agriculture and Consumer Affairs.
