Voices for Justice: Supporting Children and Youth Summer, 2016

Voices for Justice is a youth organization dedicated to providing services for children and youth both locally and globally. Voices for Justice has generously donated to the Davidson Clubhouse, a program of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Marin and Petaluma. The Davidson Clubhouse provides healthy snacks, breakfast, lunch, and engaging activities to at risk children and youth in the summer months. 83% of the students that attend Davidson Middle School in San Rafael qualify for free or reduced lunch. In the summer months, many underserved youth have difficulty accessing healthy breakfast and lunch meals and often go hungry. The Boys and Girls Club of Marin & Petaluma serve over 5,300 youth, many of whom are at-risk. If you wish to support this very important cause, please complete the attached form and mail it to Voices for Justice. We appreciate your support.
