BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF THE CHILDREN NEW YORK
EVENT DATE: Dec 31, 2013
Dear friends and colleagues,
As you know, I serve on the Board of Directors of Friends of the Children NY. As we enter our thirteenth year, the Achievers we serve have experienced some amazing successes, including:
83% high school graduation rate
80% improvement in juvenile delinquency
85% reduction in teen pregnancy
These outcomes are particularly impressive considering that we select children in kindergarten who demonstrate the greatest risk of school dropout, juvenile delinquency, and teen parenthood.
As the holidays approach, I hope that you will keep Friends of the Children NY in your thoughts and you will join me in making a tax deductible year-end gift to continue this life-changing work. With our support, these Achievers will overcome continued risk factors and break the cycle of generational poverty.
