Project Report | Feb 9, 2022
Thanks for helping Carson and his dad

By Laura Portier-LaLumiere | Director of Development

We’re all in this together is a phrase that has been said so many times since the pandemic began. At the Club, we know that means we have to be an organization that the community can count to do whatever takes to help the kids and families who need us most.

One of our office managers talks about what it means to her to be there for families. “Sometimes, being there for families is as simple as asking, ‘Is everything OK?’ and working together to find a solution if they tell you it’s not. A wonderful 3-year-old boy named Carson joined our program at the start of the school year. He’s smart, he loves to learn, and he’s a very polite little boy who is full of manners. He LOVES coming to school. After a couple of months, I noticed that his dad started falling behind in his tuition payments and was consistently late for about 4 weeks. I spoke to his dad and asked that simple question – ‘Is everything okay?’. That’s when he shared that he is a single dad who just recently got full custody of his son. He is trying his best to raise his son on his own. He said that he lost his job and had been doing his best to make ends meet, but it’s been a struggle. I shared his situation with our Director and she helped him with our scholarship program application. Carson’s dad was very thankful and he qualified for a 50% discount on his son’s tuition rate. He has voiced his appreciation for our help many times as he gets back on his feet financially, and he is extremely appreciative for all the ways that our programs are helping Carson grow and learn.”

The Club is committed to being there for families like Carson’s, now and always. Just as their family works to build back up after a financial setbacks due to the pandemic, the Club is working toward financial recovery from the pandemic, too. Your support helps make sure that the Club can keep our doors open and always be here for the kids and families who need us most.
