This cause is something I hold very dear to me. For those who don't know I used to teach PreK in many community base organizations such as this one. Hundreds and thousands of families turn to CBO sites for QUALITY early childhood education for their children that is also AFFORDABLE; I am one of those parents. The community needs this school to remain open and 30 seconds of your time can make a huge difference!
Dear fellow mommies and daddies,
I am reaching out to you because I need your support for a petition.
My daughter's school, Queens Herald Community Corporation (QHCC), located in Fresh Meadows, NY, is facing eviction because the school building owner has demanded a significant rental obligation. This will result in the displacement of 140 children and 28 staff, which is an unacceptable outcome for all, especially for the kids who will lose their second home. QHCC is truly an amazing place that we would highly recommend to every parent. The teachers are some of the most loving, patient, and kind individuals who are willing to work with a salary that's below-market-rate to support the school and kids who are underprivileged so that they can receive early education without having to struggle financially. The community cannot afford to lose a school like this.
The goal is to obtain 3000 signatures (ambitious but with all the mommies and daddies' help we can do it), with the intent to negotiate with the owner a lowered rent until the school is able to locate an alternative site.
Please take 30 seconds to sign this petition online:
Thank you so much in advance! Feel free to forward this to anyone whom you think might be interested in the greater good of humanity!
