Sandra Fatmi and United Foundation of Central Florida, Inc., Continues to Make a Difference in Pine Hills with their Upcoming Fundraising Christmas/Holiday Event on Friday, December 9th 2016 to benefit Evans High School Students.
United Foundation of Central Florida, Inc., (UFCF) is a non-profit public foundation formed February 14th 2014 to fulfill the educational, mentoring, health, and financial literacy needs of our children in the Pine Hills area, utilizing a holistic approach. When we started in 2014 we focused on early intervention, leading to prevention. Along our Journey of feeder schools which included, elementary, middle and high we met with change in leadership at both the elementary and middle schools in our area. As a result, we continued our mission at Evans and we are proud to report 2 ½ years later that we have grown more than we could ever imagine. We have provided support as a partner in and outside of the school, we have supported over 60 events over the past few years, we have feed the homeless, provided clothes and personal hygiene to our children and families, we fed the pre-game meals for the football team for the entire season, 4 seniors have graduated and gone on to College from our afterschool program, the graduation rate increased from 48% to almost 90% and our freshman mentees are doing really well. Thanks to our founding members, amazing board of directors and community partners we have been able to reach this far and realize our mission to partner with local community organizations to positively transform our children and families utilizing our education through mentoring program, to leave this world better than we saw it.
So, as 2016 comes to a close we need your help to raise $25,000.00 to continue our Freshman Success mentoring of our 9th graders, our partnership with the school, our Team mentoring of approximately 20 kids throughout the school, our Future Leaders afterschool program of 23 kids, not to mention offer our 17 seniors graduating in May 2017 scholarships.
