(AJNews) – In August the CJA began the COVID-19 Student Relief Fund to support the implementation of many proactive measures in and around the CJA facility.
We are happy to announce that due to a very generous gift from the Sam Ousher Switzer Charitable Foundation, the CJA has been able to install plexiglass partitions around student desks, as well as cover a significant portion of the cost to equip our bathrooms and classrooms with touchless faucets, two of many necessary projects needed to help with our re-entry plan. With these additions, our students and families can be at peace knowing that these preventative measures have been put in place.
We are very thankful for the support of the Sam Ousher Switzer Charitable Foundation. This gift will continue to help the Calgary Jewish Academy’s ongoing commitment to academic excellence in Judaic and Alberta educational curriculums and allow us to continue to provide innovative educational experiences to our students as we navigate through the pandemic.
As previously announced, the goal for this campaign is $225,000 in support COVID-19 re-entry needs. We are delighted to announce that the campaign has realized $50,000 thus far. We thank our donors who have generously responded with much needed donations. Now more than ever we rely on the generousity of our community, especially as we continue to take on unforeseen projects to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
