Summer Sponsorship 2019
Dear NECS friends and supporters,
Would you like to help make a difference in the life of a child who does not have the opportunity to attend camp during the summer? Are you someone who is concerned with the widening gap of opportunity and would like to help bridge the gap? If so, please consider sponsoring a child to attend camp in the Summer of 2019.
NECS is running a campaign to sponsor a disadvantaged child for 3 – 6 weeks of summer camp. It only costs about $300 per child to attend a week of camp. Many of the children and youth in our district (mostly African American and latino) do not have the means to engage in enriching programs during the summer and as a result, often fall behind by the end of summer, and research clearly shows that kids in impoverished neighborhoods often regress over the summer.
We would like to change that. As a result, we are reaching out to ask people to sponsor a child. Our goal is to provide 6 weeks of enriching educational camp to 20 children with limited means. The cost to run a 8 week summer program for 20 students is approximately $45,000. It would cost 2250 per child to attend 8 weeks of camp for free. Please consider sponsoring a child for a week or more of summer camp. Reach out to your churches and community and encourage friends to sponsor, and sponsor as a group.
To sponsor a child, you may use the link below to make and online payment or DOWNLOAD FORM, complete and send with Payment to New Era Creative Space, 1016 Brown Street, Peekskill NY 10566. Please earmark it for Summer 2018.
