TRIBE GIVES BACK! This year, the Tribe, a group of GKTC’s nonspeaking young adults, decided they wanted to devote their time and work to community philanthropy. Their efforts have been impressive.
First, the Tribe held a toy drive at GKTC and collected over 3 boxes of toys which they delivered today to Cornerstones in Reston, Virginia. Cornerstones will provide gifts for more than 1400 children this year. The Tribe met with the Cornerstone staff who were hard at work, putting bundles of toys and presents for local families.
The Tribe also made ornaments which they sold at GKTC, raising $225 which they are donating to Bikes for Tykes through the Barbera Foundation. Tribe is already planning on future collaborations with the Barbera Foundation.
Finally, the Tribe heard about a local family who has recently lost their home to a fire. The Tribe unanimously voted to donate the proceeds from sales of their literary magazine, In Words We Trust, to the family.
At Growing Kids Therapy Center, we are grateful to the Tribe for reminding us that the true spirit of the holidays comes from GIVING.
