“We know kids have been cooped up for the past couple months in their houses,” said Lauren Floyd with CODA Mountain Academy. “As things loosen up, we wanted to give kids an opportunity to be outside while respecting social distancing.”
“Everybody’s been really supportive and excited to get on board. Everybody’s been excited to offer these to the kids. The heart of all of these programs is to support the community and is to support kids.”
“Active Southern West Virginia is bringing an obstacle course for the kids to do. Read Aloud is reading to the kids little chapter books. The [Fayette County Library] bookmobile will be there so you can check out books.”
“I just really felt like it was important for CODA’s kitchen on Main to be able to serve more people,” said Floyd. “[Focusing] on the whole child—their emotional, mental, spiritual health and their physical health—[and] offering this is a way we can do that.
