We are so excited to announce that our project has received a grant to take five boys from the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Ocoee Region on a trip to Buenos Aries, Argentina! The trip will allow boys to learn about river conservation and the country of Argentina at absolutely no cost to them. This opportunity is once in a lifetime and we cannot wait to facilitate the trip.
We are reaching out to the community during this time because although this grant is incredible and will allow the boys to travel at no cost, it does not include getting passports for the boys. We are hoping that we can work with local organizations such as yours to sponsor a passport for one of our five boys. The passports are $140 each, which is a lot of money for these families. If we can provide them together, the boys will be able to enjoy this time of learning and bring these experiences back into their communities to make Cleveland a cleaner and safer area.
We hope that you will consider partnering with us on this. We cannot do this without the support of the community and we are so grateful for all you do.
If you have any questions do not hesitate to call our office at (423) 479-2020 or email our staff.
