A huge thank you to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF) and seventeen year-old Patricia Manubay, who volunteered their day and created 150 Dream Boxes for Samaritan House.
Jefferson Foundation Awardee, and pioneer of the ##DreamBox project, Manubay’s goal is to put an end to the vicious cycle of poverty with a positive solution — a dream. Her public service project, Dream Boxes – gives kids access to school supplies and empowers them to pursue their passions.
Manubay visit the SVCF headquarters yesterday, providing inspiration and support as SVCF’s staff created DreamBoxes, which will distributed to underprivileged teens through Samaritan House’s Holiday Program.
The goal for 2015 is to have 100,000 Dream Boxes distributed to kids across the country. Create your own Dream Box (using the handy instructions here) and share your contributions to Samaritan House. Don’t forget to use the hashtag DreamBox!
