You don’t have to look very hard to find people in need today. The aftermath of recent storms Harvey, Irma, & Maria, revealed whole areas of Texas and Florida destroyed. The U.S. island providence of Puerto Rico was almost wiped from the map and will take years to clean up and restore. And while these tragic situations may deserve our attention, financial aid/donations, and certainly our help at the moment, there are others suffering daily in our own city of Atlanta we don’t see on the news.
I’m talking about Atlanta’s inner-city youth. Many of these kids aren’t afforded the same opportunities you and I may have had. You may remember the Atlanta public school cheating scandal from a few years ago where administrators and teachers were changing test scores to hide from the embarrassment of a failing school system. Most of these students weren’t just failing, they were 2-3 years behind in their education. This is unacceptable! Fortunately two great charities, I’d like to call attention to, stepped in and picked up the slack.
