|The Three and a Half Acres family is sending lots of love to our friends & supporters. In order to ensure the safety of our teachers and to comply with experts and officials, we are placing our programs on pause. We are certain we will come through the other side of this storm even stronger than before.
Today, March 31st, marks the date our annual gala was supposed to take place in Harlem. We truly hope we can all gather in the near future to celebrate the hard work of THAY and our causes. We are also aware of how we can still provide support, resources and guidance to the vulnerable individuals we work with, as well as broadening the audience as the whole city, state, country, and WORLD are experiencing some sort of trauma during this crisis. We encourage you to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any suggestions, requests and feedback. We understand these are confusing times and everyone manages their feelings differently, and that is ok. There is no right or wrong. However we hope these offerings help in some way to manage what you may be feeling.
