Ignite a love for LEARNing in children like Shaylee!
Meet Shaylee, a third grader at New Haven Intermediate. Shaylee’s grandmother works at the school so Shaylee comes early and waits in the cafeteria for class to start while her grandmother begins working.
For several weeks, Shaylee sat quietly with her coloring books and watched the kids in our Before School LEARN program from a distance. She looked on longingly while the students, her classmates, were having fun, laughing and learning in our LEARN Before School program.
One day, Shaylee excitedly approached our staff and told them her birthday was coming up, and her only wish was to attend the LEARN Program. She, too, wanted to be able to be with friends, have fun and learn before school. We were able to make Shaylee’s wish come true because of funds available through the organization’s Scholarship Fund
LEARN Resource Center is celebrating its 55th year serving the East Allen Community. But it’s not about us, it’s about children, like Shaylee, that we have been able to serve for over half a century.
With your help, we can make more birthday wishes come true!
