John’s 50th Fundraiser


As most of you know, I have dedicated my career to revitalizing urban communities and improving the lives of low income families.  For the past 12 years, I have extended my efforts and volunteered my time with this amazing non-profit to provide high quality, accessible education and care to children ages 0 to 12 in the Philadelphia region. But before I was a volunteer that included 4 years as Board President, I was a MELC parent.   Our son attended the Narberth Center. We were always happy with the quality of care and enrichment activities that MELC offered, and he seemed equally happy.   What more could a parent want than to know that their child is safe, happy and thriving in a caring environment?

On June 30, 2018, I will stepping off the board because I have reached my term limits. This year I also turn 50. To mark my 12 year tenure and this milestone birthday, I am hoping to raise $10,000 for MELC.  Please consider a donation of $50 (for my 50th).

Before you go ahead a click the Donate button below, I also want to inform you how your donation will make an everlasting impact on families. I have asked that the money raised support MELC’s current project, Transforming our Classrooms into Spaces of Exploration, Curiosity and Growth. In the fall, the Board had an opportunity to see one of these classrooms. It was amazing to see how a teacher can take a wood block, a tin cup and a piece of fabric and ask children what they have in common. This transformation is making MELC classrooms a space where a child’s spontaneous, creative self-expression is increased and children joyfully develop through active play more than ever before. But it is not easy, as there are a lot of new materials MELC needs to purchase and I want my final impact to accelerate the transformation.

Thank you!
