Kids’ Club helps Sleepy Hollow High School students “get ready” for college! Today was “Breakfast for Bedding” day, as more than fifty guests attended Kids’ Club’s annual gathering to collect new bedding and Bed, Bath & Beyond gift cards for SHHS’s Let’s Get Ready (“LGR”) graduates preparing to attend college this fall. Let’s Get Ready is a nine-week, college coaching and SAT tutoring program which utilizes trained, local college students as coaches to help underserved students get to and through college. Approximately 40 college bound seniors from SHHS, many first generation, participate in the summer program free of charge.
Some of this year’s LGR students were at today’s event and got first pick from the lovely assortment of bedding collected. Former LGR graduate Imani F. told the gathering about the impact this Kids’ Club supported college prep program had on her college path and how excited she is to return to the program this summer as a site director. Thank you to all of the friends and neighbors who donated to the drive, making it our most successful Breakfast ever!
