Bridging Dots grew out of the desire to help our community during the COVID-19 crisis. Tanya Shukla, then a freshman at the Ardsley High School along with her friend Khushi Goel and sister Ananya Shukla started a GoFundMe fundraiser in April 2020 and raised over $5000 which they used to buy ingredients to prepare fresh meals for hospital workers and people economically affected due to COVID. They distributed PPEs to local hospitals and volunteer ambulance corps.

Tanya's passion for community service led her to form the non-profit, Bridging Dots under which she continues her work to address the food insecurity problem.
