The holidays are fast approaching, and friends like you have helped us raise enough to provide 475 families and young people with a $25 gift card this holiday season!
Our goal is 1,000 gift cards - we've got 525 left to go before the holidays are here. Can you help us get there?
Last year, one of the young people in our programs, Michael (name changed for privacy) had been facing a number of challenges. His family was going through a tough time, and he was responsible for taking care of his little brother. Michael also struggles with a serious medical condition that impacts his day-to-day life.
With the support of our Graham SLAM program, which provides long-term support to help young people complete their education and launch a career, Michael was able to enroll in college. We provided him with one-on-one coaching, tutoring, and leadership development opportunities. Michael persevered against his challenges, and we are thrilled to report that he now has a college degree!
Because of friends like you, last December we were able to give Michael a gift card to the movies - a much needed opportunity to just recharge after a difficult time. Being the loving older brother that he is, he decided to take his little brother to see the newest superhero movie for the holidays, made possible by contributions from our community.
We hope you'll consider making a gift - $25 for one gift card, $100 for four gift cards, or more - to help more young people like Michael experience the joy of the holidays!
