Dear Community Members
We have always prioritized the safety of our community and those whom we serve, and in these uncertain times, this is no different. That is why we are practicing and enforcing best practices for social distancing and self-isolation in the midst of COVID-19.
As you know, safety recommendations — including those for our program volunteers and participants — can and will likely change in accordance to the CDC and our state recommendations. You can count on us to keep up to date with the latest recommendations by the state and federal government. We will share this information with you on our website at eastjohnyouth.org.
Unfortunately, there is no telling when things will be “back to normal” in any sense. This means support will be somewhat selective and limited during this time to include rental of our facility for community events and our regular program activities.
Until then, connect with us virtually online via our website and social media channels. This is where you will find any updates on how we are managing any plans to re-open safely. You can also continue to support our organization in various ways by making a donation, signing up to volunteer, following us on social media, or simply tell a friend or family member about us.
We are carefully monitoring the situation (just like you) and, at this moment, cannot provide an estimated time of reopening. The most important thing is to make sure the full opening in the future happens in a safe environment. We are all in this together, learning together, and adapting together.
If you have specific questions not addressed here or on our website, reach out to us. We are still available to answer your questions and respond to any concerns, though do keep in mind, the response time might be a little longer than what you are used to.
We are working diligently to adapt to new circumstances and planning for the future. Our community has always been the heart of our organization. We are grateful to you, your ongoing support, and we look forward to continuing to serve you soon.
