November 2020 Newsletter

November 2020 NewsletterDear Inspiring Together families & supporters,

So much has changed due to the pandemic, and we’ve had to face some challenges along the way in order to adapt to the current circumstances. However, I am so thankful for the opportunities that have been presented to us including our very successful online tutoring program. 

We have officially concluded our 10 week tutoring program. We finished with a grand total of over 280 sessions. We had 26 dedicated tutors along with 27 foster students. Some of our tutors even went to the extent of tutoring more than 1 student! We had such a great experience tutoring these students and creating new friendships along the way! 

We will start the next semester of our tutoring program again at the beginning of 2021.Tutor Signup!In order to start our new semester we will need tutors! Sign up to be a tutor again next year and if you know any high school students who would benefit from this initiative, feel free to send them this sign up form.Sign up here!Monthly HighlightsDuring Thanksgiving break, three of our volunteers, Savnee Puranik,
Siddhi Nadkarni, and Sohum Rane, went up to the Bald Ridge lodge. We delivered pizza and drinks to the boys. The pizza was sponsored by
Ms. Sherri Banerjee, our sponsor for this years Thanksgiving meal. We want to thank Ms. Banerjee for her kind donation and support.

Because of Covid, the volunteers weren’t allowed inside the building. However some of the boys were able to come outside and hang out with our volunteers. Going to Bald Ridge was a great way to end our month, and we hope we can visit again during the December break.Volunteer of Month

Our goal is to give these disadvantaged youth, important enrichment activities, that because of family or financial circumstances, they otherwise could not take part in.We also want to provide them with a sense of community and belonging, since young people in these situations often do not have the family support that so many of us are blessed with.
