BENEFITING: The Child Center of NY
Kids need positive alternatives to the streets. The Child Center of NY provides nearly 3,000 kids with after-school at 15 locations each day, offering homework help, academic enrichment, sports, and arts. The results: measurable improvements in school attendance, self esteem, and connectedness to school.
Garrett and I are raising money to underwrite the provision of backpacks stocked with school supplies for the kids who attend The Child Center’s after-school programs. These kids live in communities burdened by poverty, crime and low school performance. Providing backpacks for these students helps us empower them to achieve academically and helps the trained counselors and educators of The Child Center earn the student’s trust, which is the basis for the success of these programs. It also allows their families to use the resources they might have spent on classroom materials on other essentials for their home.
Will you join us in supporting these great programs?
