For this #GivingTuesday on December 1, 2020, and my upcoming birthday, I’m asking people to join me in donating to Associates for Renewal in Education, Inc. (ARE). ARE is a non-profit that helps DC families and children from cradle to career. (Link to fundraiser is below.)
ARE has an early education program for 2-3 year olds, pre-kindergarten for children ages 3-4, before and aftercare programs for children of all ages, career support services for high school students, and a terrific clinical support services autism program that assists young people with Autism Spectrum Disorders in reaching their maximum potential by providing a wide range of therapeutic, rehabilitative, and educational services that develop communication, social and behavior management skills.
I also happen to be a board member. Like many businesses, ARE has had to adapt to the ever-changing COVID times. They have moved programs online, brought students back in small groups when allowed, and are doing the best they can under the circumstances. I would appreciate any support you feel you can give.
The link to donate is on my personal Facebook page, and can be found below.
Thanks so much!
