Dine Out Fundraisers

Thanks to many local restaurants including Chipotles, Crouching Tiger, Villa Lucia, Canyon Inn and our latest, Sancho’s Taqueria who generously donated 15% of total sales including non Henry Ford patrons! Please note during this time, these restaurants are open for take out and some for delivery. We hope you can support them and feed your families as they have so graciously supported us!

Homework Technology Support Wanted!

Do you have a used Chromebook you would be willing to donate to a family in need? No child should be doing their homework on a cellphone. Please contact the Henry Ford office if you are able to help.

At Home Maker Space

The California Schools and Local Communities Funding Act of 2020 (also known as the “split roll” initiative), will raise approximately $12 billion in annual funds for public education, local governments and community services by reassessing and taxing certain commercial properties at current market value. The initiative will appear on the November 2020 statewide ballot if it gets enough signatures to qualify by April 14.

We urge you to sign the petition, which you can do by clicking here. The campaign is also seeking volunteers to help collect signatures. Click here to volunteer.
