Summer school rides for 3rd grader in Clifton needing assistance

Hi All – We received a request for aid for a family in Clifton. The request came from an Early Intervention aid worker who was helping a child in the family.

(The child’s mom has serious disabilities which have confined her socially and physically. The family also includes the child’s two elderly grandparents. They are immigrants who do not speak English well. Most of the burden of communication and responsibility falls on the grandfather, who has health issues and is having surgery this week. Together this family of 4 has a variety of unmet critical needs. MtcMA has helped the family arrange delivery of food, toiletries, and menstrual products from Toni’s Kitchen.)

Their most urgent remaining unmet need is summer school rides for the child. The child is starting 4 weeks of summer school (for 3rd grade). He needs transportation to and from summer school for those 4 weeks. The aid worker said that the Clifton school district will not provide transportation, and wondered whether MtcMA might be able to find someone to provide those rides, July 6–30:

     • At 8:40am from home to School #2, 1270 Van Houten Ave, Clifton, by 9:00am
     • At 1:00pm from School #2, 1270 Van Houten Ave, Clifton, to home

If you’re willing to volunteer to drive the child to or from school on some of these days in July, please indicate your availability below. We’ll share your availability and contact info with the family, so they can make arrangements with you.
