Good people doing good things: The Church of the Holy Apostles, Virginia Beach, donated 300 sets of earbuds with microphones to their neighbors at Twin Canal residence. The Housing Choice Voucher Program (HUD Title 8) community has 500 children under age 18 who are attending school virtually. Earbuds with microphones enable the children to participate in their online virtual classes – listening and talking without interrupting or disrupting others in the same apartment. The Holy Apostles community raised over $900 to purchase earbuds with microphones along with other school supplies and food.
By the numbers: As it begins its second year of existence, Cristo Rey Richmond High School reports that the school has 85 new students to go along with its 83 returning students.
