END OF THE YEAR GIVING CAMPAIGN
It’s the holidays-the season of giving. Today, I’m writing to ask you to give to the B.Y.R.D. House a nonprofit agency located in Coweta County. B.Y.R.D. House help’s single parents achieve self-sufficiency by providing a supervised afterschool program for their children. The afterschool program frees single parents to achieve and secure education and better employment opportunities.
Most of our clients are single mothers and by the time they have reached out to B.Y.R.D. House they have received numerous calls from teachers and school personnel regarding their child’s behavior and academic problems. Parents throw their hands in the air and say “I don’t know what else to do” very frustrated they say “HELP!!!” B.Y.R.D. House then takes this child and provides them and parents with a sense of purpose and hope. “Beat The Street” programing provides supervision, academic enrichment and life skills. Not to forget, a very nutritious home cooked meal daily. First thing kids ask when they arrive is “what we eating today?”.
