Community Identifies Need
Communities of color remain disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 and the economic downturn.
Thanks to a community-specific grant from RootED and savings from hosting its annual staff conference remotely, DSST Public Schools were able to support a handful of local businesses owned by people of color.
More than 800 DSST Public Schools teachers and staff received $40 each in gift cards to businesses owned by people of color. See story on 9News: DSST Public Schools Gives Back to the Community
