Centro Cultural Hispano (CCH) Afterschool Enrichment Program
I am writing to inform you about the tremendous benefits the Afterschool Enrichment Program provides to the children of our community and the school district as a whole, by offering students academic support, recreational activities and cultural experiences in a safe, school-based environment.
According to the U.S Department of Education and Justice (2000), children in quality afterschool programs have better academic performance, behavior and school attendance, and greater expectations for future success. Here in our community, such a program is only possible thanks to the support of people like you.
Close to 98% of the students who attend the Afterschool Enrichment Program come from families in which the parent’s first language is not English. In many of these homes parents find it difficult to help their children fulfill their academic responsibilities.
In order to allow parents to fully engage in the academic lives of their children, the Afterschool Program offers support and guidance to working families with limited English ability, and promotes their participation in school functions and community events.
To maintain this invaluable program, which is funded entirely by local residents, organizations and participating families, CCH needs the support of caring individuals like you. Together our support can influence a child for a lifetime, so please join me in support of the Afterschool Enrichment Program by giving a tax-deductible donation or gifts of laptops, educational games or crafts materials.
All funds raised will be used exclusively for CCH’s Afterschool Enrichment Program. To learn more about the Afterschool Enrichment Program and Centro Cultural Hispano please visit their website.
On behalf of more than 5,000 adults and children that the Afterschool Enrichment Program has supported since 1998 we thank you!
