Thank you for your donation to the Montogomery College-Germantown Campus food pantry. We are happy to have your support. We value donations such as yours because it allows us to provide food to Montgomery College students in need. Data has proven that hunger impacts student performance. With your donation, we are able to assist our students with food insecurity. We do not want our students to have to worry about where their next meal will come from. You truly make the difference for us, and we are extremely grateful!
Director, Montgomery College Office of Student Life - Germantown Campus
On behalf of the members of the Gaithersburg City Council, the residents of our fine community, and the many service organizations who, like you, work for the betterment of our society, we thank you for the work you are doing to support student achievement in Gaithersburg and Montgomery County. Service organizations like the Kappa Youth & Community Foundation are an important part of the social fabric if any community. In Gaithersburg, we are fortunate to be surrounded by hundreds of service clubs, nonprofit organizations and faith-based organizations like yours, all working to create a nuturing enviroment in which our residents can thrive. Your mentorship programs are vitally important to establishing a solid foundation, giving our young people insights into what it means to be strong, thoughtful and successful leaders of tomorrow. And I applaud each and every one of you for the efforts you are making to provide book and tuition scholarships to students looking to further their education. Your accomplishments are not only measured by the services you offer within the foundation, but by your ongoing commitment to being an active participant in the broader community. We thank you for all that you do, and we hope that you will take from this gala celebration the inspiration needed to continue your important work.
The work that you do is absolutely critical. By providing financial assistance to college-bound students of color, you touch the lives not only of each of those students but of their families and communities as well. And that has a transformative effect on our success as a nation. In addition, your efforts to help families in need - with annual support during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday seasons, toy drives and partnerships with other community-based organizations - make a difference in the lives of so many and inspire others to follow your example.
