Why It Matters
Here are some of the statistics that caused us to act with a sense of urgency:
The Jack and Jill of America chapter provided all of the supplies needed for the lessons/experiments.
Speaking for Success provided an opportunity for children in grades pre-school through 12th to improve their leadership skills through communications.
Providing new experiences and lots of joy for children and families including live entertainment, dancing and breakfast with Santa.
I think the mom is overwhelmed and just needs a break sometime. This program gives her kids extra help in homework and a little peace of mind.
Look at me. I am more than what you see. Destiny is mine! If it is to be, it’s up to me.
It is fun making food from the garden.
