Covid has changed a lot of what we do....CHIP IN has helped with a lot of rent and utility payments, food and clothing....to keep families secure and safe. Thank you for all your support and kindness this year. Our normal activities and description of who we are:
CHIP IN Batavia
To ensure that BPS 101 students that are facing the obstacles of financial struggles and/or temporary housing have the support they need to be successful in school. CHIP IN Batavia is a restricted fund within the Batavia Foundation for Educational Excellence, a 501-c-3 organization. 100% of your donation is used for students--No one is paid to run this group, we are all volunteers. There is only 1 small administrative fee yearly to the Batavia Foundation for their help and support.
Each BPS 101 District School has an "in-house" point person and a CHIP IN Batavia representative assigned to them. Area church groups, Batavia Woman's Club, Kiwanis, Batavia Mother's Club, companies, and other interested groups and individuals aid the CHIP IN representative as individual needs arise at the schools. The goal is for CHIP IN to support children that have been pre-qualified by the school district by providing needed snacks, school supplies, and basic necessities that enable the opportunity to thrive and learn during the school year. This is done while preserving dignity and anonymity. We work on a case by case basis, helping students and their families with individualized needs. We move fast and as we have grown, so has our network of groups, companies, churches and friends who are always willing to help.
