A note from our Executive Director, Alicia Lawrence
In this season of thankfulness, we should also see it as a time of reflection on the year drawing to a close. I am in awe when I reflect on 2019- it was a year of unprecedented growth in children reached throughout our service area and we can officially announce that we now reach over 10,000 children in our community!
It truly takes a village and this growth would not be possible without the dedication of many individuals and organizations who believe in and rally behind our mission. From our coaches, volunteers, and staff to those who support us through grants, sponsorships, and gifts of financial support, we would not be here today without everyone who came together to invest in the programs that are the vehicle through which we reach children. Thank you seems insufficient to say to our village, so notes like this one from Emily (above) say everything.
This is the first of a weekly note from us through the holiday season to share a deeper look at our efforts in schools, at golf courses and through community partnerships.
I hope you enjoy reading about our journey through 2019 over the coming weeks!
May this season be a safe and happy one for you and your family.
