NEARI Holiday Children's Fund 2020 Erica is joined by National Education Association of Rhode Island (NEARI) President, Lawrence Purtill, and Children's Fund Coordinator, Valerie Staples. They talk about NEARI's Children's Fund and how it came to fruition over thirty years ago. The pair also highlight some of the Fund's incredible work in the community, including the annual Gingerbread Express. The group discusses how the COVID-19 pandemic has, for the first time in 30 years, stopped the Gingerbread Express in its tracks and now the Children's Fund is finding alternative was to help children in need this holiday season. And as Val says, the best way to make a difference this year, is to go to and pick the most convenient way to donate.
