Dear friends and Partners:
As the saying goes, keep it moving, this we do. For this month, we look forward to our April 27th Walk a thon.
The goal of the walk is to raise funds needed to award the Melissa B. Perkins Scholarship to 10 deserving senior high school students needing funds to go to college. This fund named after my mom has awarded over 20 inner city youth financial assistance that has helped many of them graduate from college. The walk a thon will also allow people interested in mentoring adults, children, youth opportunity to do so. The walk will kick off at 8:00am with a meet and greet and check in, and the Walk will begin at 9:00am.
We extend to fellow walkers to join us as we come together with the kids who too will be participating in the walk. Donations from the walk are tax deductible, and checks should be written to World Missions.
For with over 450 families registered in our data base and with the majority of such families with children needing help with homework, and other academic areas, we ask that persons interested in mentoring a child, contact us at the following email address: email@example.com.
On the Horizons;
This year, we will have two camps. Partnering with the Department of Employment Services and MultiMedia Training Institute Inc, our Positive Alternatives Job Readiness/Work Development Program is designed to provide youth opportunities to learn skills needed for employment and how to use multi media to creatively use the computer as a tool for navigating the web and emailing.. The program will be housed at our site location. The Adventure Day Academy summer camp will afford children ages 5 to 13 years of age opportunities to have fun while creatively enjoying their summer, going swimming, being involved in arts and crafts, going on field trips and being involved in academic classes that reinforce skills learned while attending school. The camp will be held at the Academy for Ideal Education which is located at 62 T. Street NE.
The Scholarship Rally Ceremony which is designed to award deserving seniors needing funds to go to college with the Melissa B. Perkins Award will be honored and the ceremony will be held on Sat. June 22nd at 9:Bam. Seniors interested in applying for the scholarship, should contact our office at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org to request a copy of the requirements for applying for the award which is due every year on Mother's Day.
Thanks in advance for your help and prayers,
Dr. J. Perkins, President/CEO
