CYD donors since 1994, Bob & Peggy Dennis challenge YOU!
We want to share some exciting news! Bob and Peggy Dennis invite you to join them to invest in the lives of our students and their families. They are going to match all contributions, dollar for dollar, up to $50,000. Please make a gift of any amount and see it have twice the impact! Together, we will raise $100,000 to provide for all areas of educational programming and economic support for the families of Create Your Dreams (CYD).

Immediate Needs: Grocery Gift Cards!

Nearly 100% of our students are eligible to receive free breakfast, lunch, and supper from their school. Because of the arrival of Covid-19 in our community, Atlanta Public Schools (APS) will be closed beginning March 16 indefinitely. APS will distribute food Monday through Friday from 10am until noon from several school locations. Worried that our most vulnerable families will be unable to find transportation, leave work or their children unattended at home during that time period, we are planning to supplement APS’s plan with grocery gift cards for families. Food insecurity will be at an all time high during this crisis, and we will need your help to provide the vital food and other provisions necessary during this time.

In the note field please write in “grocery gift card”. /03.25.20/

Thank You For Your Support!
