BENEFITING: SAVING OUR SOCIETY
EVENT DATE: Oct 29, 2016
Every day in America, hundreds of Clayton County youth and teens do not have the assistance or resources to afterschool care. Which means, they are often left without adult guidance and supervision between the hours of 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM. As a result, it is too often our youth and teens find themselves in negative situations, and become lost and cannot seem to rebound from their mistakes.
Since 2006, the mission of Saving Our Society, Inc. has been to instill the importance of morals and values in youth and teens we serve. H.E.A.L.S. (Health, Education, Accountability, and Leadership Skills) is the program we have implemented to reach the needs of our members. This programming has allowed for us to educate and inform parents as well as community leaders about the daily issues and struggles the youth and teens encounters, and assist them with finding solutions.
On October 29, 2016, Saving Our Society, Inc. will be hosting the first Annual Take a Step in the Right Direction 5K Run/Walk for our youth and teens in Clayton County. The 5K event will be held at the International Park (Atlanta Beach) in Jonesboro, Georgia. This walk will provide financial support which will continue to support the needs of the youth and teens we serve within Clayton County.
We are in need of your help to make sure it is a success.
The 5K Run/Walk is seeking a financial contribution or an in kind donation of goods and/or services.
Now it is time to lend a hand and offer assistance to those who will leading our community tomorrow. Let us invest the time, energy, resources and efforts to ensuring our youth, teens, and community is succeeding, thriving, and is safe by lending your support to the Take A Step In the Right Direction 5k Run/Walk.
