Marlin Foundation Donates $1,000 to YPN’s Back-to-School Efforts on Sept 16

YPN’s Civic Engagement Committee wanted to find a way to assist our local youth with having a successful school year. So we developed a partnership with Charles Drew Elementary School in Liberty City to provide their students with much needed school supplies. Through a generous $1,000 donation from the Marlins Foundation and other contributions from our Board Members, we purchased school supplies for over 400 students.

This upcoming Tuesday, Sept 16th YPN’s Board will be attending Open House at Charles Drew to distribute these school supplies to all of the kids and their parents.

As part of the YPN family, if you have any school supplies, or if you would like to purchase any school supplies to add to our gift to Charles Drew, we would appreciate your contribution. For contributions, please have all items dropped off at Marlins Park by NOON on Tuesday, Sept 16th  at the latest at 501 Marlins Way, Miami.

Due to the limited space on site, YPN Board Members will manage the back to school supply distribution. If you are interested in assisting with the distribution and would like to be placed on the volunteer standby list, please RSVP today with Civic Engagement Chair Stephanie Gaywood at We look forward to another great day of service.
