Last fall we asked you, our supporters and members of The Leaven family, to join with us and vote for The Leaven as part of Chick-fil-A’s True Inspiration Awards. Thanks to your help we were selected as the S. Truett Cathy Honoree, earning a $100,000 grant to support and grow our programs.
This award is such a great reminder to all of us that we couldn’t do any of this without you. Our supporters just like you go above and beyond everyday to make our programs stronger. You volunteer and help our students learn. You come out and join us for events. You donate gifts so that Leaven kids and families have presents to open on Christmas. You tell your friends about our work and bring with you to our events.
You give your time, money and energy to supporting your needy neighbors.
Those efforts have paid off. We’ve seen crime rates drop in communities our Leaven centers call home time and time again. We’ve seen kids go from being held back, to being top of their class. We’ve seen communities come together to improve the lives of so many neighbors.
And it’s because of you. So give yourself a pat on the back, because you’ve earned it! Thank you for your support of The Leaven; together we are helping kids and communities rise.
