Our BRAND NEW and highly anticipated H.U.D.D.L.E. (Helping Us Develop Dedication, Leadership, and Enthusiasm for Community Service) Youth Leadership Program begins this Fall in Easton Area schools. We are very excited to get this program under way, engaging 8th grade students in learning about leadership, community service, being a role model, and the like. The program will consist of roughly six sessions in total, with three in the Fall of 2013 and three in the Spring of 2014. As the program reaches the Spring, students will begin brainstorming and devising a community service project of their own for the Athletes C.A.R.E. team to tackle! Be sure to check in as we provide updates on the program as it gets under way!
On June 9th, 2013, Athletes C.A.R.E. received its first-ever award, being recognized by the City of Easton and Easton Area Neighborhood Center for outstanding service to the Easton Area community following our ‘ALL-OR-NOTHING’ Campaign hosted by WeDidIt. The campaign raised over $6k, all of which was donated to the Roof Over Shelter in downtown Easton to support those in need. A big ‘Thank You!’ goes to all those involved in the fundraiser, helping raise an incredible amount of money for an incredible cause! Additionally, we’d like to thank the Easton Community as we are honored to have received such an award and we look forward to continued service to the Easton-area.
This summer has been all about progress for Athletes C.A.R.E. After a very successful start to 2013, we unveiled our new look earlier this summer. Take a look at the new logo and info-picture below! Hope you enjoy the new look as much as we do – cannot wait to get out and serve those in need this Fall!
