First Lady Frances Wolf partners with Pennsylvania PBS to deliver encouraging messages to children and caregivers

Today, First Lady Frances Wolf offered encouraging messages to children, parents, teachers, and caregivers through the release of a series of videos created in collaboration with Pennsylvania PBS titled #TogetherPennsylvania.

Videos in the series include:
• A reading of “Ruby Finds a Worry” by Tom Percival and discussion on how to deal with anxiety with Pennsylvania Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine;
• A message of encouragement to middle schoolers;
• A message of congratulations to the Class of 2020;
• A video visit between the First Lady and Daniel Tiger of “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,” the animated PBS KIDS series produced by Fred Rogers Productions, sharing ways children can be helpful to their families during the pandemic;
• Ideas on how to have fun while staying at home; and
• A message of support to parents, caregivers and educators.

“To the children, parents, caregivers, and educators of Pennsylvania: I want you to know that we see you, we appreciate you, and we couldn’t get through this without you,” said Wolf. “Through this partnership with Pennsylvania PBS, we hope to tap into the human side of what is happening and remind everyone that their perseverance matters. We truly are in this together, and all Pennsylvanians – from our youngest, to our oldest, and everyone in between – play such an important role in our collective well-being.”

Videos that have been released for #TogetherPennsylvania can be found on any Pennsylvania PBS station’s broadcast channel, social media platform and at
