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 this summer, but can benefit from it? Are you someone is is concerned with the widening gap of opportunity and would like to help bridge the gap for people of color? If so, please consider sponsoring a child to attend a week or more of camp summer 2018.
NECS is running a campaign to sponsor a disadvantaged child for one week of summer camp. It only costs about $250/child pe for a week to go to our 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 get at least 40 kids (over the course of 10 weeks) off the streets and into our camps. Several people can get together and split the cost of sponsoring a child. Reach out to your churches and community and encourage friends to sponsor.
Our programs this summer include, architecture, art, cooking, chorus, engineering, film making, historical strategy game, STEAM, web design, and so much more.
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.
Let’s make this happen!
