New York City has partially restored funding for summer programs for kids. At this time, New York Edge has received half of the funding needed to serve our kids this summer. Families are counting on us, and we need your help to provide summer camp for 3,400 kids.
Our kids live in the most underserved communities of New York City. The COVID-19 pandemic has intensified the challenges their families face. So many of our kids have lost loved ones--including their parents. Many of our families are facing job loss and food insecurity. New York Edge’s summer and afterschool programs have always been a haven for kids—where they can get nourishment, encouragement, and support.
Please join us in giving kids an enriching, enjoyable summer that helps prepare them for the academic year ahead.
Contributing to New York Edge is a powerful and tangible way to advance equity and create opportunity for children in our city. When you invest in our city’s kids, their families, schools, and communities are also strengthened.
