Update on the events for The Carrot Project:
Thank you very much for your support of our organization over the last year and supporting this fundraiser. Our organization is currently holding our coding classes that will be finishing up in April, as well as our afterschool tutoring program and musical instruction.
As we continue to expand our programming, we are helping out local schools through the year. With the continued support of people like all of you we have been able to giveaway school supplies to several local schools, expanding our 3D in-school and after school classes, Girls Who Code programming, FIN (family in needs) backpacks and provide clothing to several youth organizations to families at risk.
Our FIN packs include: toothbrushes, toothpaste, blankets, gloves, hats and other basic needs specific to those who request them. We have also provided hygiene packs that include toiletries for youth who cannot afford them.
Our school supply runs – have provided mid-school year needs to classrooms around the community that included snacks, backpacks, Kleenex, pencils, notebooks, erasers, folders, crayons and composition notebooks.
Our expanded 3D printing classes – included a presentation to local teachers and coming in April a hand-on workshop at two local schools. Our volunteers will be giving a workshop to fourth and fifth graders on the operations of 3D printers and 3D pens, to foster a desire to work with technology.
Our 2018 summer and fall programming goals are to increase our tutoring availabilities, musical instruction classes, creative writing workshops, IT basics and expanded programming as well as drone and physic classes.
Please continue to spread the word about our upcoming programming and our past successes. If you see the need for what we provide our community help us continue our grassroots approach to success. Pass the word and keep us strong.
Thank you again for all of the support over the year.
