• YOU spread smiles to children in our care
through our Kindness Jar Project - handdecorated mason jars filled with slips of paper
bearing positive motivational messages of hope.
• YOU brought health and wellness opportunities
to children in our TRC Program including visiting
local farms and learning about the origins of
food, health and nutrition and sustainable living
practices.
• YOU built a garden at our Irvington campus
where children and adults helped plant and
continue to care for and harvest beans, squash,
corn, tomatoes, cilantro, and other herbs and
edible flowers, while experiencing the healing
power of gardening and growing.
• YOU arranged learning enrichment evenings at
neighboring schools where children participate
in STEM Projects that tie in to the classroom
lessons.
• YOU created an art therapy extension of the
classroom curriculum that exposes the children
to poems, improvisation and expressive art,
designed to help them get in touch with their
own feelings and journeys.
“If you
could only
sense how
important
you are to
the lives of
those you
meet; how
important you
can be to the
people you
may never
even dream
of. There is
something
of yourself
that you
leave at every
meeting
with another
person.”
THANK
YOU!
