Every Child, Inc. Recognizes Local Scholarship Recipient

Coconut Telegraph

With the help of generous donors such as Don and Lisa Lawson, Every Child, Inc. presented a scholarship to Raven Peters of Sarasota. Raven is attending the University of Central Florida, majoring in Political Science on an International Law track. She hopes one day to be able to fight for basic human rights across the globe, with a special interest in the refugee crisis to protect those without a voice. Raven began volunteering with Every Child Inc. in their afterschool program in Newtown and has since assisted with art classes at the Boys and Girls Club, volunteered for fundraisers, and participated in the Cinderella Project and Cinderella Project Runway, all sponsored by Every Child, Inc. Raven writes, "Every Child Inc. is the pinnacle of community organizations as they have committed time, energy and effort into numerous aspects of a child's development, whether that's financial, providing school supplies and prom gowns, after school programs, art classes and encouraging creativity through design. They are there to show a young child, like me, what service is all about and to foster a love for community, service and self.  Through my experiences volunteering with such a community driven organization my passion for giving back has only grown over time."
