Information Resources, Where to get help :

  • All our resources have pointed us to the CDC website as the primary and most reliable source of information.
  • If you know of families who need specific help - please reach out via one of the social media channels above or contact me directly.

How Can I Help ?

As we go through this pandemic, we will have to support and be there for each other. I am confident that the ISW family will be a source of strength for our entire extended local community.

We have reached out to the town of Shrewsbury and the local regional health alliance to ask if there is any way we can help. If we hear of any specific actions - we will share them via our social media channels above.

Please stay safe.
