The Charities we support
It is our goal to raise money by selling the luminary kits and then donate that money to a charity that is meaningful to our community and will better our world.
In 2017 we are raised money for Cradles to Crayons and Harlem Lacrosse and Leadership. Both charities help children in small and big ways. Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play. They supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.
Harlem Lacrosse’s mission is to empower the children who are most at risk for academic decline and dropout to rise above their challenges and reach their full potential. Harlem Lacrosse inspires children to dream about tomorrow while working hard on the field and in the classroom today. Harlem Lacrosse was co-founded by a CCHS graduate.
Both charities mean a lot to us because they help children early on and give them a better chance to succeed and believe in themselves.
In 2017 we donated $10,000 to Harlem Lacrosse and Cradles to Crayons
In 2018 we donated $6000 to Harlem Lacrosse and Leadership
In 2019 we will gather with our team of youth volunteers and vote on the charity or charities that we will support with the funds we raise. We will announce that charity by November 1, 2019.
Thank you to all who are supporting Unite with Light!
