South Bronx United is a fantastic organization that supports their students in phenomenal ways. For those of you who don't know, SBU uses soccer to engage more than 1,000 youth in the South Bronx, aged 4-19. Their model combines recreational and competitive youth soccer with academic enrichment, college prep, mentoring, health and wellness promotion, leadership development, immigration legal services, and other individual and family supports.

I have been volunteering as a tutor/college-prep mentor over the last two school years and have been so inspired by the persistence, athleticism and academic achievements of the students who participate in their programs.

This year, I got to know four awesome high school seniors: Nancy, Keyla, Teo, and Miriam. Through SBU's programming, and the critical support from their volunteers, donors, and staff, each of these students will be attending college in the fall with interests in studying history/pre-law and engineering. I'm so proud of all they have been able to accomplish through their persistence and dedication to their goals.

Each dollar donated to SBU during this campaign will be matched dollar for dollar - doubling the value of your gift!

On behalf of the students, staff and volunteers at SBU, thank you for your support!!
