How Amethyst Place families are accessing new technology through your support
Staying Connected While Staying Home🏠💜
Amethyst Place has received an outpouring of support from the community for our "A Mother's Love"COVID-19 emergency response effort. In just a few short weeks, your generosity has provided nearly $70,000 to help Amethyst Place families purchase groceries, pay rent, meet other family needs, and ensure that Amethyst Place staff can continue providing support to families on our campus. Thank you!
We're also grateful for our partners in the Kansas City community who are working together to encourage families as they adjust to the "new normal." Because of your generous support and a partnership with Connecting for Good, each family at Amethyst Place just received their own desktop computer that will remain theirs when they graduate the program. Access to technology helps families stay connected while staying home - homeschooling their kids, staying on top of college courses, researching job opportunities, and keeping in touch with friends and family.
AP mom Kayleigh expressed her gratitude for her new computer by sharing this message:
So proud to be an Amethyst Mom. Thank you Amethyst Place from the bottom of my heart for everything you do for us. I wouldn't be half of who I am today if it wasn't for this place I call home. The opportunities you hardworking, loving, devoted women have blessed me with are earth-shifting. I cried some big alligator tears when I put up this computer today and sat here with it while I watched my healthy, smart, safe daughter play in our living room. I love being part of such a big family.
I always wanted a sister growing up, and now I pretty much have 100. It's ironic: I'm the oldest of 4 wonderful boys, but I'm the youngest Mom here of all these AP women. I know this computer would be a small blessing to most people, but it's huge to us...and the love behind getting this computer is what makes it so special.
Your continued generosity during this uncertain time is immensely valued and appreciated. Donate a one-time gift today or make a recurring donation that will provide resources to Amethyst Place families all year long.
