Back to School with CARY

September 10, 2020 All day

Please join us virtually as we celebrate the return of a new school year. 2020 came with unprecedented challenges for our CARY students and their families. Let’s kick off this school year and celebrate the amazing resilience of our community while raising our voice to spread CARY’s message of youth empowerment.

This special event will be a fully virtual, live-streamed experience, giving you the opportunity to make a difference from the comfort and safety of your home or wherever you may be! This event is free, however, pre-registration is required to receive links to the virtual program. After you register please check out our virtual silent auction!

Also, Kendra Scott is hosting a 48 hour Gives Back Party for CARY. Starting on Sept 10th at 12 am till Sept. 11th midnight you can shop online and enter code GIVEBACK9013 in your cart or at checkout on kendrascott.com, or mention it at checkout in-store at Kendra Scott Lamar Central, and 20% of your purchase will go back to CARY services.

 

Proceeds from this event help to fund on-going services and mental health programming for our students which is a basic need. CARY clients need to feel safe in a time of uncertainty, and we are the best-positioned organization to help our at-risk youth remain resilient and healthy. CARY Kids are in need of more funding for mental health so they do not end up in the juvenile justice system which has proven to lead to further involvement in the criminal justice system as students age into adulthood. We need to work together to close the school to prison pipeline. 

CARY’s vision is that intervention with these students will decrease crime and delinquency and result in improved school attendance, improved grades, and improved citizenship. Help us continue to make a difference in our community and join CARY today!
