To help the local community impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, Community Backstop is teaming up with former Phillies reporter and Comcast SportsNet anchor Leslie Gudel and the Food it Forward program. Community Backstop is building on Leslie’s initiative by supporting the local area restaurants, first responders, and families in need from Wayne to Narberth along the Main Line.
With Food it Forward, you’re giving not once, but twice. One hundred percent of your tax-deductible donation will go directly to purchasing gift cards from locally based, regionally owned food establishments. You can even designate which establishment(s) you'd like to support. We will then donate those gift cards to first responders and families in need. Recipients will include Radnor families.
Community Backstop will be matching the first $10,000 in donations and Radnor families will be one of the recipients from the funds that are raised.

The African Education Program's (AEP) educational resource center, led by Radnor alumnus and executive director Julie-Anne Savarit Cosenza (RHS '05), followed protocol by the Minister of Health and closed its doors in response to COVID-19.
Despite the clear risk the virus poses to the community, families cannot afford to stay at home. They depend on selling vegetables in the market or charcoal on the roadside to survive. They are now facing a life-threatening decision…continue these daily activities and risk exposure to the virus in a place with incredibly limited healthcare or run out of food immediately.
In response, AEP created the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Family Fund to provide three-weeks worth of food to our 250 families in exchange for their agreement to stay at home, limit exposure, and do their part to flatten the curve in our community.
