BENEFITING: United Way Silicon Valley
Help the kids!
The statistics tell us that a child is 4 times less likely to graduate high school if they can’t read by the end of 3rd grade. United Way Silicon Valley and I are working with schools in East San Jose to help get kids ready for kindergarten and beyond with the “Bridge to Kindergarten” program. This 3-week program is designed to give kids the tools they need for a successful start in school. While students are learning, parents attend onsite parenting classes as well.
Too many children in this area arrive to kindergarten unprepared without the skills they need to succeed. As most of us know, kids who start behind often stay behind. By donating, YOU ARE HELPING PUT A STOP TO THIS.
This is the highest need area in the county and they need our support to help ensure these children are ready for the future.

All money goes immediately to fund this program to make sure the kids get the help they deserve.
