? Princeton-Blairstown Center ?

We learned of this organization a few years ago and have been supporting it ever since. The Princeton-Blairstown Center’s Build a Bridge to Summer Learning provides 300 students from Trenton and Newark with evidence-based summer learning to facilitate daily academic enrichment, lessening summer learning loss. It also enables the students to practice crucial SEL skills to build the self-confidence they need to make positive changes in their lives. Here’s where you can learn more about this organization: https://princetonblairstown.org/. We donated and encourage you to consider donating too.

And if you have an organization you’d like us to support in upcoming issues, don’t be shy, shout it out!
