Dear Milagro Center friend,
100 is a very special number at Milagro Center.
100 represents the percentage of teens from at-risk neighborhoods that graduate from high school after participating in our after-school programs that focus on academics and the arts. The typical dropout rate is 40%.
100 is the percentage of third graders at Milagro Center who have successfully moved on to fourth grade for the past eight years. This compares to the 5.1% of students at our local elementary schools that are held back annually, and the 25% of PBC’s 3rd graders who fail the FSA English Language Arts Test.
100 reflects the percentage of our children who show improved and outstanding talents in art, dance, and musical instruments, which, as research supports, help develop critical and creative thinking skills that are important for success in school and in life.
BUT MOST OF ALL, 100 ALSO REPRESENTS HOW
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF MILAGRO CENTER’S CHILDREN BY PARTICIPATING IN OUR ANNUAL “100 FOR 100” CAMPAIGN.
$100 will ensure that two children will go to bed with one new book every two weeks to read and dream by.
$100 will help a family keep their child in our award-winning after-school program, which includes cultural arts classes, academic support, living values and mentoring.
$100 will provide a healthy well-balanced after-school meal for an underserved teen for four weeks – the only nutritious meal many will receive that day.
Please take a personal stand, commit to making an even bigger difference, and join us for our “100 for 100” fundraising drive. Be a part of the positive and lasting impact Milagro Center has on these young lives and on our Delray Beach community!
Your passion and kindness truly create miracles! With sincerest gratitude,
Barbara J. Stark
President & CEO
