BENEFITING: Project Renewal, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Project Renewal, Inc.
Five years ago I started my first "real job" at Project Renewal. I have learned so much about homelessness, the stigma and what it takes for someone to turn their life around. Everyone deserves a second chance and the opportunity to change -- that is exactly what Project Renewal gives.
I so am proud to be a part of organization that brings health, homes and jobs to homeless New Yorkers. I have been so fortunate to meet the many formerly homeless men, women and children who have gone through our programs and truly changed their lives. We recently broke ground on a new family housing residence for children moving from a shelter into a permanent apartment. Of the 60,000+ homeless New Yorkers, 24,000 of them are children. Bedford Greenhouse will provide safety and stability for many of these families – and an amazing rooftop garden, children’s library and counseling.
Please support me in my first (and maybe only) marathon by donating to support those who need it the most.
Thanks so much!
