Although virtual learning during the pandemic has created a different environment for students and staff, Kelly May, Audubon Elementary School Family Resource Center coordinator, is not allowing any challenges caused by COVID-19 to interfere with the partnership the schools share with the Goodfellows Club.

May said it is just a matter communicating with families that the Goodfellows Club and the resource center are still available to assist with needs.

“In some ways it’s still the same, and in other ways, very, very different,” she said. “Parents are doing all they can to make sure that their children are doing what they need to do in their classrooms and parents are still working … so (we’re) just trying to make communication just as easy as possible.”

May said teachers are also great with notifying the family resource centers when they have concerns.

She said Goodfellows Club also still helps the c enter meet those needs by providing clothing and other assistance.

“Goodfellows is … such a gem that we have in this community,” she said. “What a blessing; what a resource.”
