A national movement, #GivingTuesday rallies generous people to give online to their favorite charities each holiday season. This past #GivingTuesday, we called on our supporters to consider supporting the youth at ECS’ Out of School Time programs
ECS Out of School Time (OST) provides after-school and summer camp services to elementary and middle school students at various schools throughout the region. Educational enrichment is a major priority, as is providing a safe, constructive environment in the crucial time when school is out and many parents are still at work. It offers academic, cultural, and healthy recreational activities, and it promotes academic achievement, the arts, and leadership skills.
Our supporters are the best! As you saw, this past week we ran a #GivingTuesday campaign to collect educational games and toys for ECS Out of School Time participants.
Thanks to our supporters, we did it! We requested 119 items for ECS youth, including such things as books, sports equipment, board games, and more. And we exceeded our goal – bringing in 120 items!
Thank you from all of us, and on behalf of those we serve.
