BENEFITING: City of Dreams

ORGANIZER: City of Dreams

Tony Verutti

THE STORY:

Welcome to Tony Verutti's Fundraising Page.

What is City of Dreams?

City of Dreams' youth and teens live in one of the city’s most challenged neighborhoods in San Francisco. They face many negative influences every day, which often leads to dangerous and unproductive activities. In this community, only 1 in 4 will graduate from high school and exposure to gangs, drugs, and violence is the norm.

At City of Dreams, we have proven to change these negative odds through youth development, mentorship, and by offering a safe and supportive community center for our neighborhood youth.
We want to continue to offer our youth and teens opportunities to learn, grow, and reach their fullest potential. Historically, 80% of our operating budget relies solely on the money we raise each year. We are determined to raise at least $10,000 to keep our program operating, and we can only do that WITH YOUR HELP.

As many of you know, I’ve been involved with City of Dreams for the last 7 years, and it’s been amazing to witness the impact that COD is making on the Bayview community.  To give you an idea, the kids involved in this program are thinking about college, and considering their futures outside of Bayview.  They’re receiving the hope and guidance to accomplish their dreams.  Your donation allows this great program to continue. 

It has been an incredible year for City of Dreams. In addition to the on-going mentoring provided to the kids, the COD leadership has constructed a new garden in the middle of the Oakdale community center.  This addition empowers the kids to grow their own fruits and vegetables, and gets them thinking about a much healthier diet.  The daily after-school program is helping these kids improve their technical literacy, and gets them off the street to focus on education.  The kids have also begun selling local and organic produce throughout the neighborhood, giving the entire area access to essential fruits and vegetables.

The purpose here is to humbly ask you for a donation to help this program continue. Your contributions will allow the kids to keep getting the mentorship and guidance that benefits the most challenged youth in San Francisco.

Thanks in advance for your consideration and for supporting the belief that ‘Anything is Possible’.

Tony
