Please Support The Foundation Schools

January 18th, 2011

I wanted to write a quick note to ask for your support for a cause very near and dear to us at The Sutter Group. We recently became aware of The Foundation Schools, an independent, non-profit school that strives to meet the educational, social and psychological needs of students with emotional disturbances and that have been unsuccessful in traditional educational settings. As Kristina and I learned when we toured their Prince George's County facility a couple of months ago, the students they serve arrive with countless challenges in their lives. They are at high risk for school failure, drop-out, victimization, substance abuse, criminal activity and continued poverty. Many of the students are abused both physically and emotionally at home. Without The Foundation Schools, these children feel hopeless.

But this noble organization relies on the support of the community to serve these children.

That's where you come in. They are getting ready to host their primary fundraiser, The Art & Soul of Learning, on April 14, and it's not too late to support the cause. Please consider donating, advertising, sponsoring or even attending the gala.

Please support them if you can. These kids need you.
