Our End of the Year Wish List
We’re focusing on supporting our High School Youth as we close out this year. If you’re interested in supporting one of these areas you can donate HERE. If giving for one of the funds below, please note in the memo line. Thank You!!
Your $25 Donation provides materials for all youth for one our Creative Arts Sessions. Our high school youth take part in dance, drama, photography, culinary arts, graphic design, painting, and more. This fund helps us purchase all needed materials for each 6-8 week session.
Your $50 Donation ensures youth are Prepared for School with a backpack, school supplies including a USB drive and class presentation materials. These are provided not just in August as school starts, but prepares all students for their academic needs as they enter our youth program throughout the year.
Your $100 Donation provides transportation and food for one of our youth to attend Passport Camp this summer at Jacksonville University where they’ll participate with partners from Highland Baptist Church in Louisville, KY. Highland is covering the cost of camp through our partnership. Not only will they enjoy a stretching week of service to others in need in the Jacksonville area, they’ll stay in college dorms and participate in tours and events on campus following camp.
Your $150 Donation sends one student for our Annual Senior Trip. In an effort to expand the horizons of our youth we’ve started this annual experience for the high school seniors in our program. Last year they explored the nation’s capital with the highlight being a tour of Howard University and a visit to the United Negro College Fund national offices. This year our trip will take the youth to Atlanta, GA!
Your $200 Donation provides a life-changing experience at Camp Oasis during spring break. This camp sponsored by South Florida Urban Ministries is hosted in central Florida in a rustic setting. This is an opportunity to get away from the urban chaos, experience spiritual growth, and enjoy engaging activities.
Your $250 Donation funds one Laptop Computer for students to work on their homework as we seek to create a mobile computer lab to extend technology to all our students during program times. These laptops will allow students to go online to complete required reading assignments and do online research for papers and presentations.

The Christmas list…all kids love to make them as the holidays approach yet, whatever the wish, mom and dad may not be able to afford it. And nothing hurts more than the inability to provide their own special memories for their children.That’s why we started a new tradition that’s built on dignity, not dependency. We call it “The Christmas Store.” Parents are blessed with the gift of choosing those gifts their children are requesting and giving to their children. The children are blessed with a Christmas gift actually from their parents. And the program provides a meaningful way for the more fortunate to donate children’s gifts during the Christmas season.Instead of giving a gift directly to a needy child, donate new toys for children of all ages, to The Christmas Store. We will sell them – not give them – to parents who can afford to pay a small price. Thanks for your role in giving the gift of dignity this Christmas season.In keeping with our community-based efforts, The Christmas Store is only offered to Overtown residents with TML participants receiving priority.
