For the past 46 years of being incorporated, Hawthorne Youth and Community Center (HYCC), has given so much to the Highland Park neighborhood of Roxbury.
We have had a big year! We have a new digital makers space and computer lab. We dedicated our garden space to Sam Sadd, our longtime director. We named the Tot Lot at Marcella Park also after Sam Sadd. We hired 28 youth through our after-school and summer youth employment program called 'Grow it Cook it Share it. We have a new Brand! In 2018 and early 2019, we received the Cummings Foundation 100k for 100 Grant and the second year of a grant through Children's Hospital to increase Health and Wellness Programs . Your donations helped us fund our Programs Director. We are now in the process of re-branding and working to re-launch all of our programs by January 2020.
Please join us in supporting a good cause. Us, because We need your help.
We are raising money for HYCC, and your contribution will continue to make a huge impact, whether you donate $5, $90 or $500. Every little bit helps with our goal to raise an additional $10000 in 8 weeks to continue to grow our programs,staffing and infrastructure.
