#GivingTuesday 2020 - Lynnette Borree from Simple Kindness for Youth (SKY)

This podcast is a part of our Giving Tuesday series and today we talked with Lynnette Borree from Simple Kindness for Youth (SKY). Their mission is to help young people build and maintain their self-esteem by providing means to access basic needs, enable them to feel accepted with their peers, and enable access to educational activities and community participation. SKY board members are unpaid volunteers. All contributions go directly to the youth of Houghton, Baraga and Keweenaw counties. They cover things like clothing, instrument rental, after school tutoring or enrichment programs, motivational incentives, drivers education fees, extracurricular activities (gymnastics, swimming, Taekwando), transportation to events/activities, and summer enrichment programs.
