Imagine a local youth becoming the pro basketball scoring champ and Most Valuable Player. And then imagine that person using his fame and wealth to support homeless and disconnected youth here. No need to imagine – it’s the truth.
Kevin Durant’s Foundation has awarded SBY a $10,000 grant to support our summer enrichment programming. But perhaps even more significantly, Mr. Durant has come out publicly in a big way to urge us all to roll-up our sleeves in support of young people and families who are struggling to survive. Coupled with our 40th Anniversary Campaign kicking-off at a high-profile Gala at the British Embassy in September, during which we will begin raising funds to support our mission for the next 40 years, we couldn’t be in a better position to also raise awareness about youth homelessness.
So many, many thanks to the Durant Foundation, and to all our current and future supporters….stay tuned for more information about the roll-out of our 40th Anniversary Campaign. For more information contact James Beck at 202-675-9340.
