Many parents are wondering how to keep their kids connected, despite fears over COVID-19. As local school districts work on the best options for each of the areas they serve, which include in-person learning for younger students or hybrid or remote-only options, most after-school clubs, sports, and other extra-curricular activities have been postponed—at least for now. But, not Girl Scouts! The organization has taken this crisis and turned it into an opportunity to offer innovative and safe ways for girls to make new friends and learn life skills. Host Shannon Brinias was joined on "The Extra" Tuesday by Girl Scouts of Colorado's Katie Singleton, Chief Membership and Program Officer, and Emily Speck, Mission Delivery Manager. More information can be found at girlscoutsofcolorado.org.
On "The Extra", host Shannon Brinias crunched the numbers with economist Chris Salviati of ApartmentList.com after the release of the company's rental growth report, and what it shows about the trends in Colorado Springs, where rents are up 0.7% since start of the pandemic. Rental rates have grown 2.1% year-to-year, with the median rental cost of a 2BR apartment at $1,285 per month. This contrasts to the national trend and the trend across Colorado as a whole, which have been mostly flat due to the coronavirus pandemic.

USAA Making a $30 Million Dollar Donation to Miitary Affected by COVID - KRDO’s Afternoon News with Ted Robertson - August 20, 2020
$30 Million Military Family Relief Initiative Provides Continued Support for Military Families Impacted by COVID-19
While Labor Day traditionally provides a day off in recognition of the American worker, this year it is a reminder of the more than 30 million Americans out of work because of the COVID-19 health crisis. And as many families struggle to pay rent and utilities and put food on the table, military families have been hit especially hard with the unemployment rate for military spouses at nearly 30-percent and more than 23,000 guardsmen currently deployed stateside, which creates additional stressors. To provide direct assistance, including financial relief, USAA has committed $30 million to its Military Family Relief Initiative, the largest one-time philanthropic contribution in USAA’s nearly 100-year history. Two dozen military and general aid non-profit organizations will receive support, with nearly $20 million directed to military aid societies and organizations that support all five branches of the military through grants, interest-free loans, and other types of support. Another $10 million will be provided to organizations that offer career support; childcare and educational services for military children; and programs that support caregivers, families of the fallen, and wounded, ill, and injured military personnel.
This week August and his crew of experts will discuss the rising prices and whether to sell your home or to fix up your existing home.
