HAPPY SUMMER!!!
Thank you HappyKidsCare volunteers for all your hard work so far this year.  Hockey and hotdogs was a big hit.  And the ice cream social was standing room only. 

If you would like bring or prepare plus serve a meal to the families at Inspirica, please email me: maximiliank@optonline.net. 

Tutoring and mentoring opportunities begin in September 2017.
 

*************************
The 2017-2018 chess dates for Inspirica Shelter will be posted at the end of summer. 

InspiriKing Chess Club was co-founded by Max and classmate Lucas K.  Together, and with many youth volunteers, they are teaching critical and creative thinking to many inner-city children. Youth volunteers of all levels who are age 7 and older are welcomed! Email Max or betsyberns@gmail.com.


Thank you to Greenwich Blues Mite B Hockey team who spent the afternoon playing gym hockey with the children of Inspirica.  They played hockey, had a toy raffle and enjoyed pizza and snacks.  AWESOME JOB!  The kids LOVED it.

The BOY SCOUTS were awesome helping the children decorate the gingerbread houses for the holidays.  Way to go boys!

A BIG Thank you to Gretchen B, LJ and his 2nd grade classmates who came out to play games and had a pizza party on Nov. 25th. The kids AND the volunteers had so much FUN.

The boys had a ball with Luke J. and his hockey teammates who surprised the kids with "Make Your Own Sundaes" and sports play.  Way to go Luke and friends!

The Mann family generously sponsored a magical day of ballet for the Inspirica children over the holidays. The Nutcracker performance inspired many of the children to get excited about our upcoming ballet lessons.  Stay tuned for upcoming ballet dates.  Thank you so much to the Mann family.

A big THANK YOU to the O'Neil family for co-sponsoring the "Back to School Dance Party" for Fairfield County's homeless children.  Thank you for making it possible. If your family, child or business would like to sponsor an upcoming event, please email us.  We would love your help!


VOLUNTEERS:  Please let us know if you have an idea, interest or hobby and would like to share at an upcoming event. The kids really enjoy learning new things and it's wonderful way to contribute your ideas and talents.

We are also looking for youth volunteers* to take on leadership roles in our community service projects.  A great opportunity to learn leadership and life skills while improving the community.


* Many of the children of Inspirica Homeless Shelter attend public schools in Stamford. In order to protect their privacy, volunteers for the Inspirica events cannot attend the Stamford Public School system.
