As we continue to navigate these uncertain times, we are reaching out to share important updates on additional steps we are taking to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.  Please find programmatic updates below:

  • Effective immediately all doula service will be conducted virtually.
  • Member errands can only be conducted for families who need essential pharmaceuticals prescribed by their doctors or for families with food insecurities and who cannot get to a supermarket.
  • All Pal for Parents classes for March have been cancelled and will resume virtually in April.  Please check back and also follow Pettaway Pursuit Foundation on social media platforms Facebook and IG.
  • Any unused points earned from attending Pal for Parents classes will not expire and may be used during our next Treasure Chest Boutique shopping day (TBA.)

Our families are at the heart of our mission, particularly during this unprecedented time, we will be continuing our commitment to them in new and creative ways.
