How Manchester United are battling coronavirus - Notebook
Manchester United have been working สมัครสมาชิกfun88 hard to help the community during the coronavirus lockdown. Sky Sports News' North West reporter James Cooper has been speaking with the club's foundation to find out more.
John Shiels has worked for United for almost 40 years. So when the MUFC Foundation chief executive tells you he's never been more proud to be an employee, it means something. And you begin to understand the difference they are trying to make in the fight against coronavirus.
The Foundation has been สมัครเล่นเกมยิงปลา running for 13 years but its work stretches back further than that. It partners with 27 high schools and three special schools and John told me that straight away the priority for funding was the children who need it most.
"I think it's pretty challenging out there, things like energy bills, food. I hear stories where dads are eating one day and mums the next so that they've got food to feed their families.
"Most of the schools we work with have got online curriculums but most of the families we work with haven't got access to that.
"If they have, they might only have วิธีเล่นไฮโลออนไลน์บนมือถือ one device and they might have four or five children working on that one device.
"The areas we work in were challenging pre-covid. Now and afterwards it's going to take a lot of building to get back.
"We've tried to act as quickly, as effectively, as efficiently as possible. We think the best way of getting to the most vulnerable children in our community is to go through the schools.
"We have amazing relationships เว็บหนังออนไลน์ดีที่สุด with all our schools, we have an officer in each school for a minimum of three years, but there's no one who knows their community better than the schools, so that's what we decided to do, go to each school and give them a family support grant."
The grants add up to £300,000 of extra funding, with the schools themselves deciding how best that money should be spent.
John said: "What we've said to the head teachers is: 'You know how best to spend the money we're giving you'.
"For example, we work with a little wheelchair-bound lad who likes nothing more than going and sitting on the front bench in his garden. Someone took the bench, so we're now working with our Group Property Services so we can make a bench that won't be taken again.
"We also help an older boy with autism who loves magic. What we're going to do is give him some virtual magic lessons and then he's going to come and perform for the kids when they come back after closure.
"But for our mainstream schools the needs are more basic than that, it's more human need."
