Make a Holiday Donation to Keep the Hope Alive
Each December we invite volunteers, alumni and those who want to help inner city kids succeed in school and in life, to make donations to support our work. I hope you'll do that, and that you'll forward this message to friends, family and co-workers, in Chicago and throughout the country. Just point them at the Cabrini Connections donation page, and they can print a form to mail with a donation, or use the on-line PayPal to submt a donation.
You can also join the Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection Cause on Facebook, and make a donation via that site.
As you consider your choices of holiday donations, I encourage you to read the stories of some of our teens and activities that are posted on this blog, then also look at the Timeline, that shows the growth of Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection since 1965, when employees of the Montgomery Ward corporation started the tutor/mentor program that led to Cabrini Connections.
In addition to the time line, I encourage you to look at the Metrics page, this shows many ways that we quantify what we've accompished. Most important, is the growing list of youth who graduated from high school and college.
Then view this video and see how our teens are asking for your help.
Without the help of our volunteers, and people who make donations throughout the year, we could not provide this community of support. Please help by making a donation and encouraging others to do the same.
