HOW YOU CAN HELP. DONATE MONEY. JOIN THE NEW CALIFORNIA HEALTH CORPS

Dear PAUSD Parent,

The Palo Alto Council of Parent Teacher Association (PTAC) highlights two ways you can help.

First, you can donate money to financially support your school PTAs now working with school principals to provide financial assistance. You may also donate to a charitable organization that has already been serving your son’s or daughter’s school community. Or, you may choose to donate to COVID-19 Relief Funds launched in our local community (see above banner). Give generously if you can.

Second, you or someone you know can now join the new California Health Corps. This is the new fast track to bring more health care workers to care for the anticipated surge of COVID-19 patients. It is a 5-step process. We need all the health care workers in these categories who help increase our CA health care system’s capacity. Help spread the word. 

“You will be paid and will be given malpractice insurance coverage. Locations will vary, but we will try to match your geographical preferences.”Apply now at: https://covid19.ca.gov/healthcorps/
