“People are angry. They don’t understand what to do next. There is confusion,” said Mycyk.
With remote learning, layoffs and kids with homework, Felicia says it’s too much to manage.
On her social media page, she’s heard from dozens of families who need help.
“You can’t blame the school for not being ready for this because guess what? They were ready for everybody to be in the school,” Mycyk said.
With tough choices and many unknowns, Mycyk began partnering with local churches and the Rotary Club to raise money to buy laptops for families in need.
“You’re supposed to give back to your community,” said Mycyk.
Mycyk says the one thing that can’t be given back is the loss of opportunity now that athletics are canceled for the rest of the academic year, too.
“It still hurts. … I have 14 seniors on my team,” Mycyk said.
Raeffon Ruskin is one of those seniors on the Ambridge High track & field team.
“Working all that time for my senior year to be taken away from me, it breaks my heart,” Ruskin told KDKA.
In Ambridge, The Network of Hope, Good Samaritan Church and Rotary Club are all helping to buy laptops for families in need.
