BENEFITING: Memphis Child Advocacy Center
EVENT DATE: Jul 27, 2012
The purpose of this fundraiser is to raise funds to provide school supplies and school uniforms and shoes for a number of urban youth. This nonprofit organization works with at-risk youth in an effort to deter them from jail. We work various youth groups around Memphis, TN in decreasing youth violence. Most of the youth we work with are in impoverished homes. They are in homes where they are exposed to violence and are at risk for repeating the models set before them. We reach out to them and offer intervention and support. By providing them with the tools to succeed in school, the healing process begins. This effort is to estinguish the shame and embarrassment of not having the proper clothing and supplies to start the new school year. School begins August 5, 2013. Please help us in our efforts.
