How prolonged school closures will affect students is yet to be seen, but it is nonetheless evident that this is a challenging time to be a school-aged child. Throughout, Horizons Savannah has adapted to provide innovative ways to engage students in educational activities, help build social and emotional resilience, and deliver resources to the community with the goal of closing gaps that are ever widening in the wake of the barriers schools have faced for over a year.
Funds raised during Giving Day 2021 will support this summer program, featuring engaging academics, social-emotional learning and swim lessons for every child, as well as continued engagement with Horizons Savannah students throughout the year.
- Papa Murphy’s will donate 25 percent of every carry-out order made on Wednesday, May 12th, by customers who say they support Horizons Savannah;
- Ghost Coast Distillery will host a “Ghost Coast Gives Back” benefit concert for Horizons Savannah on Saturday, May 15th, from 4 – 7 p.m. featuring live music from the Mandrakes and a BowTie Barbecue food truck. A dollar from every drink sold will be donated to Horizons Savannah. For more information, visit Ghost Coast’s Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/491358328541514
“Our mission is more relevant now than ever. While COVID-19 might have set some students back, we are determined that it will not define their futures. We have a huge opportunity this summer to give youth the attention, resources and support they need,” said Christy Edwards, executive director of Horizons Savannah. “Horizons is busy preparing a summer program that will be our best yet. We can’t wait to see our students again and gradually return not entirely to normal, but to a place where we as a program are stronger and more resilient than ever.”
