Operation Care: 💜GO! YOUTH Update and Board of Directors💜
Go! Youth Update!
This year, due to COVID-19, youth in Amador County saw a change in how school was being presented to them. This semester, our students had to start the school year at home. Many were without proper school supplies, laptop or a workspace. Operation Care was able to help our Go Youth participants by offering
utilization of our Chromebooks, purchasing desks for them and providing them with proper school supplies to start the school year off right. Below are some photos of some of our youths workspaces.
Sutter Health Grants Helped
our Go! Youth Program
In February 2020, Operation Care received the Community Benefit Funding Grant from Sutter Health. This grant focused on serving underserved populations and addressing community health needs. Funds from this grant allowed Operation Care to continue its Go! Youth Program. The Go! Youth Program helps youth to learn about self-esteem, hygiene, proper nutrition, and overall well-being.
In collaboration with the Amador County Unified School District, Interfaith Food bank as well as the Sutter Health Grant, Operation Care provided 3,990 meals to our Go! Youth Program participants, and has driven over 12,463 miles to provide curbside delivery to our youth. We deliver breakfast, lunch, food boxes and hygiene kits weekly and are able to provide the youth with activity craft kits as well as activities from our Go! Youth Program Classes.
