Childcare for essential workers available; volunteers sought

By Executive Order, the public school districts of Sullivan County have developed emergency child care plans for essential workers. Essential workers include first responders, healthcare workers, food manufacturers, supermarket workers, food preparation workers, commercial truck drivers, transit workers, carriers of critical and essential materials, construction workers, manufacturing workers, specialized equipment workers related to health or safety of the public, and nonprofit and social service agencies providing support to families, and employees in related fields.

Completion of the Child Care Survey for Essential Workers is the first step. You will be contacted directly by the program coordinators with further information.

Volunteers needed

Volunteers are needed to staff the two childcare centers for the children of essential workers as  the region contends with the COVID-19 pandemic.
