Your monthly news & updates
January 27, 2021 virtual Vinings Cumberland Rotary meeting, where “Run for the Kids” sponsors and grant recipients were acknowledged.
In January, H.E.R.O. for Children, Inc. received a $7,500 grant from the Vinings Cumberland Rotary Club’s “Run for the Kids” Program to support Camp High Five 2021. This Club has supported our Camp High Five for several years; this is our largest grant award from them thus far. Our very own Executive Director, Donna Drakes, is a member, and is the Club’s immediate past President. We are extremely grateful for the Vinings Cumberland Rotary Club’s continued support!

Due to the pandemic, Camp High Five will tentatively take place in the fall this year. Details TBD.
Virtual Tutors Needed
H.E.R.O. is openly recruiting volunteer tutors to assist our students in the areas of math, science, social studies, language arts, and reading. We would prefer volunteers who are at least 25 years old, and have prior teaching/tutoring experience. If you are interested, please email our Match and Development Coordinator – Nadia Eliacin – at nadia@heroforchildren.org.
Super HERO Mentors Needed
The Super HEROes Mentoring Program is a community-based, one-on-one mentoring program serving children infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS. The program provides these children with the opportunity to have a positive role model through a mentor and to strengthen their life skills, self-esteem, communication skills, goal-setting and academic performance.

Volunteer mentors needed to:
  • Spend one-on-one quality time with a child at least twice a month, a minimum of two hours each time (virtually during the pandemic).
  • Participate with the child in a bi-monthly group activity organized and sponsored by H.E.R.O. for Children (virtually during the pandemic).
  • Be a positive role model for the child.
  • Contribute to strengthening the child's self-esteem, social adjustment and life skills.
