Success Won’t wait supports We are Their Faces and two local book giveaways

Many thanks to Johanna Vazquez and her family, pictured, who coordinated both book giveaways, and for all of those volunteers at We Are Their Faces, Inc. for encouraging all of us to Make a Change!This week, Success Won’t Wait volunteers were thrilled to partner again with We Are Their Faces, Inc., a non-profit, based in Wilmington, Delaware that educates, advocates, and empowers families in the community, so that they can reach their full potential by overcoming poverty. We are Their Faces, Inc. provides a diverse range of programs and events to help families develop essential skills needed, while residing in less fortunate neighborhoods.

Success Won’t Wait provided 200 children’s books for two events sponsored by We Are Their Faces. First, the Yearly Lights Afterschool Education Trunk or Treat with Red Clay School District which was held on Oct. 25th. This event was for students from Pre-K through 8th grade.

Second was the “Feel GREAT to do GREATER” School Uniform Drive; Instead of filling a yearly 50 Thanksgiving Baskets & hosting Adopt a Family for Christmas, We are Their Faces will instead begin providing local families with at least two sets of School Uniforms along with one toy & an age appropriate book (donated by Success Won’t Wait). This is a great way for kids back in the New Year feeling great in so many ways.
