Greetings CYP Friends!
July kicked off with the Caregiving Youths Got Talent Virtual Talent Showcase, where you had an opportunity to show off your talent. There was such great talent in the room! Shout out to our first-place winner Sha'keba - 8th grade, for singing so beautifully!
The following week at Rapids Water Park, most of you enjoyed daring water slides while others had fun in the waves and lazy river. A huge shout out to Captain Paynee of Belle Glade for providing transportation for our CYP participants who live there.
Art opportunities continued with our partnership with Manipura Care Network with time spent at Morikami Museum & Garden, Norton Museum, Perez Art Museum Miami, and Fairchild Tropical Garden. The fellowship ended with an amazing art showcase to show off all your work. How special!
We are grateful to Leeds Endowment for their new and generous support of Caregiving Youth so they have needed financial help to achieve their goals and make a difference in our world.
A big thank you also goes out to Spirit of Giving's Back to School PBC program for helping our community with backpacks, school supplies, and other back-to-school essentials. This generous support was a great help for many of you, ensuring you have what you need for the new school year without causing any disruption to your caregiving household. With this wonderful gift of time and resources, we set you up for success and make your back-to-school journey much smoother.
