CORA Service, an organization which was very important to our friend Robert McElhenney growing up, has taken a major financial hit during the pandemic.
A lot of people are in difficult situations right now, but if you are able to show your support for community organization who is struggling without the basic funding they receive, please do!

Rob checked in with The Preston & Steve Show to talk about CORA, quarantine and did you know The Gang almost played The Linc?
More about CORA Service:
They are raising money to stabilize the agency during this uncertain time and cover the additional services they’ve added to support families in response to needs that arose during quarantine as well as to make up for the money lost in cancelling the golf outing. Save the date for next year’s event: May 24, 2021 at Philadelphia Cricket Club.
In April they launched the free Family Resource Line so parents can call in and receive advice, support and even free virtual tutoring from their educators and counselors.
They’re preparing to partially reopen on July 6th – just our Early Years programs and four summer camp sites to support parents that need to return to work. They also have virtual summer camp programming for kids preschool-8th grade.
CORA has been operating remotely since March 16th. They decided not to lay off any staff and found meaningful ways to re-purpose them, if they couldn’t do their usual job virtually, and put their knowledge and expertise to use for families that need support now.
CORA is approaching their 50th Anniversary of serving kids and families – gifts of any size help us help more kids and keep our staff working for them!
