Help Newark area children succeed in school
More than 1.2 MILLION youth drop out of school in the United States every year at an incredible cost to their families, the community and our nation. This spring break, rather than hitting the beaches or going home, I'm going to be in Newark, New Jersey. There I'm going to work with United Way with dozens of other college students from across the country to volunteer with children in and around Newark. We will work to develop literacy skills, improve child care centers and any of a variety of activities to make a difference.
I need your help to make this a reality. I've contributed the first $50 toward my participation fee. I need to raise an additional $225. All of the money contributed will be donated to United Way to cover program expenses (our housing, meals, local transportation and service project supplies). If you wish to donate to help me pay for the trip, that would be wonderful. Also I would love to share all the amazing stories I will have when I return. All donations are tax deductible. And we promise to share our progress and success on the ground in Newark with everyone who supports the program.
I hope you'll join me in this powerful, meaningful event. I can't get there without YOUR support. Thanks so much.
Please note: All donations received are charitable gifts to United Way and are available to support the ASB program at United Way's sole discretion.
