We are pleased to submit this request of support to you as an individual who has shown dedication to social justice and community building. We look forward to your partnership in our cooperative efforts to strengthen the community of Cap Rouge by building a creative, safe, and sustainable space for our community members to gather, learn and grow together.
Research shows that a community benefits when young people have access to recreational and after school activities. School attendance and grades improve, incidences of risky behavior decrease, life skills and lifelong healthy habits are acquired. There are over two hundred young people between the ages of five and eighteen who live within a two mile radius of where we are planning to build this much-needed space. None of the kids currently have the option to participate in after school sports, arts, educational, or recreational activities and we aim to fill that void. We are simply lacking the space do more right now and requesting your helping hands.
