Purple Feet Foundation: June Impact Report

Happy Summer to all of our PFF friends!

As always, there is a lot happening with the Purple Feet Foundation.  Over the past three months we continued to work with our PFF kids through a special mentoring project in conjunction with Cabrini College. College students worked virtually and in-person with our PFF kids, helping them develop their literacy skills while reinforcing math concepts.  The college students also paid visits to our PFF kids to interview them for a new PFF Student Spotlight series on our blog.

The spring also included trips to a baseball game, our annual charity golf tournament, and the rollout of our application for this summer's thinc program.

Six years ago we started our summer thinc program with eight students.  In three weeks, because of your generosity, we will have 50 students join us to spend the week exploring the possibilities for their future on the campus of Cabrini College.  

This year marks the first year that we will have all three grade levels attend (i.e., seventh, eight and ninth), and we have some special surprises planned for each of them.  

Check out the PFF Donor Report we prepared for you to learn more about our work, the PFF kids and your impact.

Dear friends of PFF,

Thank you so much for your continued support of the Purple Feet Foundation (PFF).  It has been an incredible year of growth in many ways.  We were able to expand our summer thinc program so seventh and eighth graders can attend.  We also expanded support to our PFF kids throughout the school year through a partnership with Cabrini College.  

And now our PFF kids are paying it forward to their younger peers in fifth grade through our #GivingTuesday holiday book drive.

Take a look at the December edition of our donor report.

Thank you and happy holidays!

Love, 

Martha and Lance Rougeux
