In response to the COVID-19 virus and resulting economic hardships many face, Near North Montessori has established the NNM Cares Fund to support our families and ensure we emerge as a stronger community. This year, it is more important than ever to come together to care for one another in this VUCA (a term for situations that are vulnerable, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) world. Our school has seen significant changes over the many months. But, we are a resilient and compassionate community ready to step up to support others in need.
When COVID closed our school last March, both current and alum families stepped up to support NNM. Masks were made, PPE was donated and our community stepped up to philanthropically support those who needed some extra help. This year will be no different and this is why we will be focusing all efforts around NNM Cares.
There are a number of ways in which every one of us can support our community through NNM Cares to make sure we not only survive, but thrive. This is a year unlike any other and we are leaning on our families to support Near North like never before.
