Posted 3 years ago by Toronto Charities / 162 views
unum is excited to announce the date for our “annual” fundraiser in support of the Joe’s Crew El Salvador – Global Education Fund. Mark your calendar for Friday, October 26 and join us for an evening of connection, community, and contribution. Tickets are $25 and include appetizers and one free beverage (alcohol or non-alcohol). There will also be some great door prizes, a silent auction, raffles, and some surprise games I know everyone will enjoy. There will also be a cash bar.
Joe’s Crew was created in 2017 by Joe’s wife Pam, as a means of celebrating the relationships Joe has developed through the years and the communities he has touched all over the world. It acknowledges the positive impact we can have on the world around us through simple acts of kindness and contribution. Joe believes that education is essential in addressing issues related to poverty and inequality in the world today, regardless of cultural context or geography. A cornerstone of the unum society is to increase the capacity of others to not just improve their own situation, but to enable others to do the same, resulting in healthy communities. To this end, Joe’s Crew was created with the goal of providing financial assistance to those seeking to further their academic pursuits in communities where financial and other barriers prohibit many from taking the next step in their education.
Working directly with the rural community of Caserio El Escalon located in the Municipality of Santa Catarina Masahuat, Joe’s Crew will provide funding to the students of the Los Machados Del Canton San Rafael School Center as well as community members with the purpose of continuing their education at a local technical college. Acceptance and approval for the funding will be determined by the teachers of the local school, a member of the unum society organization, as well as an administrator from the local technical school to ensure fairness and transparency. As well, funds may be directed to the school for infrastructure improvements such as implementing internet access, library equipment, etc. All projects will be identified by the community as areas of greatest need.
