Charities Being Presented At The Next Meeting

Gloucester Education Foundation would use a gift to support the O’Maley Academy After School Program, which provides quality after-school and summer programs to hundreds of kids each year, at no cost to their families.  O’Maley Academy offers classes and activities in subjects ranging from theater, to robotics, to video journalism, and gives kids the opportunity to explore new interests, make new friends, and find a place where they feel safe and connected to a community of supportive peers and adults.

Rose Baker Senior Center Art Program in Gloucester would use the donation to support a series of experiences within the cultural communities of Cape Ann to instruct, inspire and celebrate the creativity of our senior citizens. The resulting work will be featured in an exhibition at the Rocky Neck Cultural Center. The money will pay for transportation, art supplies, framing and rental of the exhibition venue. Any monies not spent on the project will be used to repair the program’s kiln and purchase art supplies for the Rose Baker Senior Center.

The Summer Learning Loss Program (SLLP) of North Shore YMCA seeks to close the achievement gap for rising 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders on Cape Ann. Cape Ann teachers recommend 52 kids to complete our *free* 6-week literacy program. Each day starts with a healthy breakfast (in collaboration with Open Door Food Pantry), a morning of literacy instruction, lunch, then an afternoon of fun at Camp Spindrift free of charge.
