As many of you know by now, NICM is participating in The Big PayBack
on May 6. This 24-hour nationwide online giving event is giving people across this great nation the chance to build awareness and raise funds for hundreds of deserving nonprofit organizations.
All funds donated to NICM through The Big PayBack will go directly to the new NICM Computer Lab
which is being established here at our new property on Apex Street. The equipment, hours of availability, mentoring connections and all other details have been carefully thought out and will provide something to both our students and adults that they have not had access to before. The thing that makes our computer lab unique from the normal model is the relationships that will be formed between our amazing volunteers and those who will be coming to the lab from our inner city communities.
Each of our students has a unique story that will both challenge and inspire you. Go here to read about Anthony,
one of our high school students and check back over the next couple of weeks as I share with you stories of more of our students. Once you hear their stories, I have absolutely no doubt you'll understand the great need there is for us to provide a safe and loving environment, as well as a way for these young people to do everything they can to stay in school and receive their diploma.
The evidence is clear and convicting and I thank you in advance for your support!
