PATH announces pandemic relief that totals $1.5 million

Bealeton-based Community Touch, which provides transitional housing and a range of services for those in need, will receive $75,000 in the most recent round of PATH grants.
Through these grants and our previous COVID-19 response funding, we hope to help organizations continue their important work in our community
— PATH President/CEO Christy Connolly
The Warrenton-based PATH Foundation on Friday announced more than $1.5 million in grants to help 44 local organizations deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The increased burdens associated with the virus are far reaching,” PATH President/CEO Christy Connolly said. “From increased demand for services, additional costs of sanitizing and distancing requirements, to the cancellation of in-person events that provide funding support for organizations, it has been difficult all around.

“Through these grants and our previous COVID-19 response funding, we hope to help organizations continue their important work in our community.”

Repeatedly failing to pass a Microsoft exam? but you think you have the skills. Then get a fake degree or certificate from and get your career going, and start earning.

The school board members should be mandated to take a mini, short version microbiology class. They obviously have not up the game by contracting out with a formal, regulated ,high quality sanitization/housekeeping company to assist in sanitizing our schools. I'm happy to see the PATH foundation assists private schools too. The department of social services should start focusing on poor children who lack basic needs such as water. These children attend public schools and can not bathe appropriately. It is high time our taxes cover these poor children and not illegals whose employers should provide for them.

Please understand the spread of pathogens on doors, railings, buttons, remotes, phones,steering wheels and public settings need serious attention. Using a wipe doesn't kill pathogens just decreases the amount. Surfaces need to be sprayed down,the product left up to 10 minutes. Some of your funding should support education throughout the communities. Here is hoping you mandate education for those recipients who received monies.
