BENEFITING: NEW EARTH ORGANIZATION
I have unfortunate news to share. Three weeks ago one of our super star students, Alex, was pulled over and arrested on his way to work at New Earth. He was taken in for questioning and detained for an act that took place a year and a half ago (before he officially began aftercare services with us). He admitted to being a co-conspirator in the crime. His friends and relatives pulled their money together to post his bail; and his next court hearing is on July 11.
Alex is extremely regretful for what has happened. For those of you that know Alex can attest to his amazing character as a person, musician, and artist. Since Alex has been working closely with us he has immensely transformed himself. Over the past year Alex has received a promotion to Team Leader in our Explore job program and received the New Earth Rock Star award at our holiday dinner. That award goes to the young person that exceeds expectations in their work. He is also a huge inspiration for the young men who enter our post-release programs.
Alex needs your help. New Earth has covered most of the legal fees but we still need to raise $2500 to cover it all. If you'd like to contribute towards this in any amount please go to the link below.
Thank you for your help! We are fighting hard to keep Alex with us so that he can continue to inspire young people caught in the system.
