Many children in our community are hindered in their education because they lack access to basic necessities. MatchED is an exciting new program introduced by 19 NORTH to help community members meet the specific needs of students in the local schools. Any staff member at any 19 NORTH school who notices a student is lacking an essential such as eyeglasses, dental care, hearing aids, food, clothing, a mentor, etc., can fill out a form and submit a request. Community members and resource networks will review these requests, and work toward meeting these needs as quickly as possible. If you are interested in submitting a request for a student, or in signing up as a donor, you can do so at www.odfchurch.org/matched. For further questions or concerns, contact Shannon McBride at 602-667-7797 or Shannon.firstname.lastname@example.org.
