Giving Tuesday: Support Youth Voices Program

With the colder weather upon us and early sunsets, it can be hard for urban teenagers to find safe places to gather after school. When they do find a coffee shop or restaurant, they are faced with two problems: High prices and a social bias against boisterous groups of teens, particularly young people of color.
The Aquinas Center Youth Voices program has devised a solution: Create their own coffee shop experience. These 13-17 year olds have determined what they need to host the cafes and even identified a charitable cause for proceeds. On this Giving Tuesday, please consider donating items to help their effort. We need the following:
– Coffee (espresso beans or ground regular and decaf)
– Used espresso machine
– Hot chocolate mix
– Brownie and cake mixes
– Sugar and creamer
– Candy
– Packaged cookies
Items can be dropped off at the center or arrangements can be made for pick up. Contact Shirley at 267-702-3454 for more details.  If you prefer to give online, visit: Thanks!
