On Friday, May 6, 2022, The Program, It’s About Change partnered with Give Local York to participate in the 24-hour local giving challenge. Taking careful inventory of the resources needed to meet the needs of the clients we serve, The PROGRAM identified client needs that would benefit from Give Local York donations for 2022. We identified donation levels that would provide our clients with the most amount of needed support returning home.
At 9am, The PROGRAM’s Youth Outreach Specialist, Kiuana Henderson, and The PROGRAM’s Housing Case Manager, Samantha Brong, took to Facebook Live to share information about The PROGRAM’s services and impact on the York community.
Later in the evening, The PROGRAM’s CEO AliceAnne Frost took to local TV station Fox 43 to share information with viewers about The PROGRAM’s support of the citizens of York and encouraged viewers to consider donating to The PROGRAM during the final hours of Give Local York 2022.
Throughout the day, a total of 32 donors contributed a total of $3,380 to support The Program’s mission! All donations will go directly towards reuniting families and enabling individuals to lead successful lives despite prior missteps. Stay tuned for more updates about who the donations have helped!
