Brian Skinner, a life-long Connecticut Resident and past SMPA tutor and and Trustee on our Board of Directors shared this call to action on his social media:
“I just shared this, but deleted and reposted, because I’d like to do more than post. If you donate, let me know, and I’ll verify and match it dollar for dollar up to 10k. There is a link below, put my name in the leave a comment section. I’ll leave it open until Sunday (June 7, 2020).
If you are feeling the call to action today, I want to share the link for the Saint Martin De Porres Academy in New Haven. It’s a tuition free private school for New Haven kids whose core mission is to address inequality in education and break the poverty cycle with it.
I was introduced to the school after college and worked as a tutor and board member over the years. It is truly a special place that makes a real and tangible difference in kids lives. You can visit anytime ( post Covid ) and see for yourself. I really encourage you to do that, the kids are awesome.
If you want to do more than just post, you can volunteer or donate money. Getting all the required funding to run the school can be a struggle, so every bit helps and is sincerely appreciated.
