BENEFITING: Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech
Please help me raise $5,000 to sponsor a child at Clarke and open a world of limitless possibilities. Together we can help to shape that child’s future!
Clarke teaches children who are deaf or hard of hearing to listen and talk. By working with Clarke’s highly specialized therapists and educators, and gaining access to sound via cochlear implants or hearing aids, these children learn to listen and talk just like their peers with typical hearing. Within a few years, these children transition from Clarke’s pre-kindergarten program to their neighborhood kindergarten where they learn and thrive.
As a professional in the field of speech-language pathology and communication disorders, I’ve witnessed what Clarke does to prepare young children with hearing loss for academic success and a lifetime of opportunities to succeed. However, there is a significant gap between the public funds Clarke receives and what it actually costs for Clarke to provide these life-changing services. Many of the children served by Clarke in Jacksonville are from low-income families and don’t have the ability to address this gap. I want to make a difference and invite you to join me in sponsoring a child here in Jacksonville.
When donating to Clarke and supporting my Sponsor a Child initiative, you join a community that is passionate about helping to change the lives of children with hearing loss. You will experience the joy of knowing that you are having a lasting impact on the life of a child who is deaf or hard of hearing.
Please join me and donate so we can sponsor a child together at Clarke! Clarke’s goal is to secure sponsorships for all 70 children served by the school this year.
Follow this link to meet children who are deaf or hard of hearing and watch their short video “A New Day” to hear about the possibilities for yourself at: http://www.clarkeschools.org/welcome
It is a new day for children with hearing loss!
Thank you in advance for your donation to Clarke,
Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization. For nearly 150 years, Clarke has been enabling children who are deaf or hard of hearing to thrive in school, in their communities and in life!
