39% OF RENTERS IN TEXAS SAID THEY WERE NOT CERTAIN THAT THEY COULD PAY THEIR RENT IN AUGUST

An estimated 27% of adults in the U.S. missed their rent or mortgage payment for July, according to a nationwide survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau weekly over the last three months. Among renters alone, just over one-third (34%) said during the waning days of July that they had little to no confidence that they could make their August rent payment, a stark measure of the ongoing economic devastation for households stretched to the brink by coronavirus pandemic.

The survey registers the deepest uncertainty across the South, where in some states, more than one-third of renters and homeowners said they missed their last rent or mortgage payment and would struggle to meet their obligations for August.

In Texas, for example, 39% of renters said they weren’t certain they could pay their rent (or they were sure that they couldn’t).

This week we are saying goodbye to our 2020 summer interns, Thao and Vivian! They were able to work with us through the Plano Mayor's Summer Internship Program. During their time here, they organized virtual adventure camp activities for CCMC kids, engaged the community in our cause, and learned more about the prevalence of homelessness in Collin County.

*RECAP OF PMSIP END-OF-SUMMER DRIVE-BY PARADE:*
Sounds of cheer, noisemakers and pumped-up music made for a fun morning as 52 teens who participated in the Plano Mayor’s Summer Internship Program were celebrated during a drive-by parade on July 27 at the Hilton/Dallas Plano Granite Park Hotel. With cowbells, signs, pom-poms, clackers and more in hand, Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere, elected officials, and employers and sponsors erupted with excitement as the interns showed up in decorated cars honking and waving to parade goers.

It was all in lieu of the 400-plus guest luncheon that usually culminates the summer program. Instead of business attire, the students were dressed comfortably and showed off colorful signs thanking the businesses and nonprofits who devoted so much during this increasingly uncertain and difficult summer.

The Mayor expressed his gratitude to longtime presenting sponsor Capital One, major sponsors JPMorgan Chase and NTT Data Services, and program sponsors Atmos Energy, Bank of America, City of Plano, Dallas Mavericks, FedEx Office, Kroger, Liberty Mutual, Oncor, Plano ISD and Granite Properties. And everyone put their best social-distancing foot forward with masks, hand sanitizer and plenty of space between guests.

“It was important to us that we acknowledge these fantastic interns for showing resiliency and not backing down during what was an extremely challenging summer,” said Mayor LaRosiliere. “These teens are true trailblazers who learned to navigate the virtual business landscape while making connections with some of our region’s top companies and nonprofits. I remain in awe and grateful to our partners who were creative and so committed to our youth during a time when it would have been easy to not participate. They have made a difference in the lives of our students.”

The parade marked the last week for the seventh-annual Plano Mayor’s Summer Internship Program, which provided 52 Plano public high school students with remote or onsite jobs (or a combination of both) at top companies and nonprofits. The eight-week program ran June 8-July 31, and interns worked 20-40-hour weeks earning a minimum of $10 an hour.

During several parade stops, the interns received a swag bag with donated merchandise and sundry items along with a box lunch. In addition, Mayor LaRosiliere presented each student with a personal note and City of Plano pin.

The Plano Mayor’s Summer Internship Program gives outstanding teens an opportunity to gain real-world experience through employment in a professional workplace. The program combines Plano’s vibrant business community with a nationally recognized school district, connecting motivated high school students with exceptional local companies and organizations.

Way to go Cheryl Jackson ! 1st step to solutions is raising awareness of the problems! The increased need for food is a precursor and warning sign for the devastating impact of COVID we can expect on housing and homelessness. We at Agape witness the increased, many fleeing domestic violence which has escalated during COVID but in. Shall we bury our heads or work together for real and lasting solutions?

We are collecting letters of encouragement for women under our CCMC programs!

Words to Heart is a student-led organization at Plano West Senior High School that spreads encouragement throughout the community in the form of letters handwritten by students. In partnership with our donation drive of self-care items, they are having members of our community write kind and encouraging notes that will be included in the self-care packages to CCMC women.

TO CONTRIBUTE:
Fill out the form at tinyurl.com/ccmcletters and write a kind note on any paper. A Words to Heart team member will pick up the letter from your mailbox on SATURDAY, July 25 to drop off at CCMC's office. More details in the graphic below!

If they determine your address is too far for a pickup, they'll email you asking you to submit your letter online (through email), and they will copy it down word for word.

We highly encourage you to participate-- the letters don't need to be long. Every bit of encouragement will mean volumes to the women receiving them!

We are having a donation drive of self-care items for moms in CCMC programs! These items will be assembled into self-care packages and given to the women, who are undoubtedly very stressed right now. Many have dealt with domestic violence and trauma in the past, and are now experiencing job loss and health concerns due to COVID-19. So if you could help with any of the listed items, we're sure the women would be deeply touched by your kindness. No donation is too small :)

If you are interested in donating, please read the recommended donation items (blue) and the dropoff guidelines (green).

IMPORTANT: No matter which dropoff option you plan to follow, please complete the form at tinyurl.com/ccmcdonations prior to your dropoff!

We are proud to kickstart our 2020 Summer Program for children at CCMC! Our theme this summer is "Around the World": we will be preparing craft kits and virtual field trips to a different country each week. Through fun crafts and virtually travelling the globe, the experience will alleviate the stress of being quarantined at home and spread awareness on diversity. We started our first adventure locally, with educational videos on human rights and the craft kits pictured below! We will be focusing on countries in the Americas for the rest of this month.
