Storefront Academy Harlem wrote -As you may know, I serve on the Young Professionals Committee of an amazing school -- Storefront Academy Harlem. One of the things that I love about the school is its commitment to teaching the whole child, including rigorous academics and enrichment activities, but also lots of programs to encourage health and wellness in all of Storefront Academy’s students. Healthy eating and healthy living are skills that are taught to every one of the Storefront’s nearly 200 students every day. This includes healthy breakfast and lunch provided free-of-charge to the full school community throughout the school year, cooking classes in classrooms and after school, sports teams, fencing, and weekly movement classes teaching dance, yoga and much more. On June 15th, I’m playing shuffleboard for a cause, and I’ve pledged to raise $400 to support Storefront Academy’s health and wellness programs. All of the meals and incredible programs Storefront Academy provides cost $1,500 per student per year. As a tuition-free private school, all of the Storefront’s students are on full scholarship, so donations make it all possible!
