The Blue Ribbon project is a 100% Volunteer, community based organization supporting abused and neglected children in our community as well as youth that are in foster care. We are a 501(c)(3) and your donation is 100% tax deductible.
Some of the programs that your donation supports are:
Backpacks of Love: This program provides backpacks containing emergency essentials to abused and neglected children the moment they are being removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. These backpacks are age and gender specific that cover children and youth from newborn to 17 years of age.
Aging Up...Not Out: This program teaches important life skills to older foster youth who are at risk of "Aging Out" of the foster care system. Your donation helps purchase items and materials for each of these important classes and give our youth a fighting chance as they age out.
Foster Friends: In this program, we help pay for children in foster care that wish to take an extra curricular activity. Your donation helps pay for a foster child to get into a sports program, take music lessons, take a dance class, purchase a cub-scout uniform, take karate, etc.
Speak Up...Speak Out: With this program, members from The Blue Ribbon Project give presentations on child abuse and how to recognize it in the community. While the presenters are 100% volunteer, your donation helps pay for materials for each of the presentations.
Remember, The Blue Ribbon Project is 100% volunteer which means our staff does not collect a paycheck and there is very little "overhead". 100% of your donation goes directly to these programs.
