BENEFITING: Horizons For Homeless Children
EVENT DATE: Jun 02, 2016
Demonstrating the power of social media at its finest, one small tweet by Diane Hessan of the Startup Institute alerted us to the horrifying statistic that 1 in 30 children in Massachusetts experiences homelessness at some point. Within an hour we were in touch with Horizons for Homeless Children and ready to plan a party! Last year we raised $55K towards feeding the children in Horizons’ care. This year our goal is $75K! Horizons provides opportunitis for children to learn, play, and thrive through their comprehensive early education centers and shelter-based Playspace Program. This year’s $75,000 will be put toward supporting an entire year of upkeep for 10 Playspaces in the Boston area. These beautifully updated spaces provide a safe environment for children to play and simply just be children, while allowing the parents invaluable peace of mind as they work toward securing a better lifestyle for their families. Let’s join together to help these families stay on track and give their children the chance to flourish! BOSTON YOU'VE GOT THIS!!!!
