BENEFITING: COMMUNITY CHEST OF ENGLEWOOD
School is starting but afterschool programs also need to be in session!
"The 3pm school bell signals the end of the school day and for some the start of an unsupervised afternoon...."
The Community Chest of Englewood is working to end this reality!
We are raising funds to provide scholarships for children to attend an after school program whose funding has recently been cut.
"I was so disappointed when my son's afterschool program lost its funding. We just can't afford to pay the full tuition. He loved the program and he learned so much. It was easier for me to go to work and concentrate on work. Now I worry all the time that he will get into trouble or get hurt..." (Mom of an 8 year old boy)
We want your "Bids for Kids" because after school programs provide:
- A safe space for kids to socialize
- Additional academic support for kids
- Opportunities to engage in structured activities and learn new skills
