It's In Our Hands
Our Community Initiatives
Tweens & Technology
Our mission is to prepare more children for a career in STEM. We have conducted an after school pilot program with Smith Magnet Elementary in Raleigh, North Carolina and will have our first summer camp in August of 2016 at St. Andrews Methodist Church.
Annual Golf Tournament Benefiting Alzheimer's
The Johnston County Alzheimer’s Music and Memory (JAMM) program has been implemented at three long-term care facilities in the County. This program is simple. It provides an iPod with a personalized playlist of music for each person. By listening to favorite music from their past, research shows Alzheimer’s patients can “come back to life”, allowing them to feel like themselves again and socialize with loved ones, according to program workers. You can learn more about this initiative here.
Annual Bowl-A-Thon Benefiting Autism
We chose the Rolesville High School Autism class because of Ms. Gamsey and her team. We witnessed first hand how they are working miracles with the funds that they have. Our mission is to increase those funds so they can take monthly life skills fields trips. Our mission is to acquire iPads, so they can continue learning and growing. iPads are MUCH easier for the students to use than a computer with a keyboard. Please join us to make this happen!
