Washer & Dryer Program
One in five students struggle with access to clean clothes, which leads to students missing school and those kids who miss school are seven times more likely to drop out.
We decided to break down this barrier to attendance by providing every school in Evansville with a washer and dryer.
We’re partner with Chef Stanley Trice and Ivy Tech for this program. Children will learn lifetime skills by practicing basic math skills such as counting, weighing, measuring, and tracking time. They also gain social skills by working together and communicating in the kitchen. Plus, teaching the youth how to cook is an opportunity to teach nutrition education like planning meals and making smart food choices.
Granddaddy's Garden spot
Granddaddy's Garden Spot will increase access to local food, inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs and help local residents maintain a healthy lifestyle through agriculture and gardening.
Young & Established and The Dapper Man’s Parlor is partnering to create a new program that will provide free haircuts for students once a month. We will be bringing the barbers to each school and are planning to start at McGary Middle School. #youngandestablished
