Crestwood Association of Parents and Teachers

Relief Fund

Hello Crestwood Crickets,

We hope you are all doing well and staying safe. CAPT has been discussing ways to support our community during this crisis, as well as how to re-imagine the silent auction for the Caper.

The CAPT board has decided to start a COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund for Crestwood Families. This fund with begin with a donation from CAPT in the amount of $4383. This amount was arrived at by reviewing our budget for events planned this year, as well as teachers donating their classroom budgets. While this fund will be organized by CAPT, the use and distribution of funds will be maintained by staff for privacy reasons. Some of the ways this money will support our community are; access to supplies and technology, groceries and food, books and learning resources.

How can you help?

1. Make a direct donation. Visit to make a donation.

Stay safe Crickets,

The CAPT Board Members
