Terry Stevens & Amy Barton
The SBCL is hosting a food drive for summer food baskets for about 15 young adults who have aged out of foster care.
The statistics of those who age out of foster care are disheartening. Nationally, only 3% will graduate college, 20% of young adults end up homeless as soon as aging out, and 40% within 18 months. Connect With A Wish (CWW) is a local non-profit that is working hard to change those statistics by supporting these young adults with numerous programs. A key support program is Connect to Careers (C2C) which works one on one with these young adults to assist them in furthering their education and starting a meaningful career. This year, C2C wants to support them with summer food baskets.
Please, use the below link to sign up for items. Thank you for your kindness and support of our local community.
You can drop off items to Terry Stevens at 312 Shad Lane or Amy Barton at 308 Back Bay Crescent any time the weekend of June 23-25. If you have any questions, contact Terry at [email protected]
