Save a City
Organized by: Chloe Rangel
I would like to start a scholarship that I can say to the people of Reading Pa "your child will have the choice that ,if they want to go to college they can". If the chidren graduate from high school I want to guarantee them the funds to go to a community college and/or state school of their choice. I would want each recipient to know upon entering freshmen year of high school that if they stay in school and graduate they can go to college. Ideally I would like to do this for every graduating class in Reading PA but I know that is far off. My immediate goal is to raise enough to send a class of 25 student to college. Reading Senior High School has a graduation rate of around 50%. I would like to see that number change with the help and kindness of others ,because this will change peoples lives and slowly the city. A city is only as good as it's people.
I am by myself right now and I will be giving 100% of what ever I raise to the students of Reading Senior High School. I see this as a way to help people directy. The only way I am able to help, because I am not a large charity.
Reading for its size has the 5th highest crime rate
Reading was the 2nd poorest U.S. city in 2013
