Exhausted with holiday shopping? Unsure what to get your loved ones?
Please consider showing them your generosity by giving a gift in their honor to Make the Road New York!
For working families, your support can make the difference between dignified jobs, stable housing and achieving their dreams, versus unemployment, eviction and missing crucial opportunities. (Click here for a full run-down of what we’ve accomplished in 2013 alone.)
Here are some ways you can make a difference for a low-income family in your final holiday shopping:
- $50 – Sponsors a student in one of our ESL, computer or citizenship classes.
- $75 – Funds a childcare group so working parents can attend these classes.
- $100 – Provides a certified workplace safety training – helping a low-wage earner find a new living-wage job.
- $250 – Affords critical legal services to a tenant or worker in need so they can keep the heat on, fight an eviction or collect back wages.
- $500 – Gives a young person comprehensive college access support with applications, financial aid, and tutoring.
