FirmRock Children's Helper compiling a digital library
In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, millions of people all around the world have become unemployed. For this reason, charitable giving is also regrettably on pause. So far, FirmRock's fundraising campaigns to raise the money to build the brick and mortar establishment for the official FirmRock library center in Itoloni village has had slow progress.
The organization has opted to focus this time to bring the people of the FirmRock community together. A library is much bigger than the building that it is in. Knowing this, FirmRock is compiling a comprehensive digital archive to act as its source of library materials even without an official home.
The organization's mailing address will also receive donations of books, electronics, and school and building materials to supplement the library project. Gently used items would be greatly appreciated via post, for those who would like to give them. However, the organization recognizes that at this difficult time, people may even be reluctant to part with old and used possessions. FirmRock stands in solidarity with the economic loss created by the coronavirus pandemic.
