On Christmas morning, when I was five years old, our house burned down and we lost everything we owned. My mom, who was raising my sister and me on her own, moved us to a new town in Pennsylvania where we started our lives over.
Two things saved me. First, many people from the community came together to give us clothes, furniture, and even a car to drive until my mom could provide for us again. Even more important, my mom always kept me on track, despite the challenging circumstances. I realize that not all children are as fortunate as I was to have someone to guide me, especially when life was difficult. Having a role model watch out for you at a young age can completely change the trajectory of your life.
The Dream Apron Program strives to help as many children as possible, however please know that opportunities for national and local sponsorships and participation are limited. We encourage you to contact us for more information and submit requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your requests will help determine how we will support various causes in the future.
