As you may know, I joined PENCIL because R is starting kindergarten this fall at a NYC public school. After investigating the options in my area, I knew that I needed to be part of making things better for public schools and their students. PENCIL does just that - on the school level with principals and teachers, and on the student level with our Fellows internship program for high school juniors and seniors. This summer, PENCIL is celebrating its 20th Anniversary! In honor of PENCIL’s 20th year I am challenging myself and my family to help NYC students reach their full potential by participating in PENCIL’s 20/20 Challenge to raise funds to support PENCIL’s important programming. If 20 people donate just $20, I’ll reach my goal of raising $400. Will help us transform schools with your $20 gift?
