Winston-Salem Freedom Schools will launch its collaborative initiative with its Make a Difference! fundraiser on March 19. It will be a virtual and in-person event highlighting the Freedom School experience and its impact on over 400 scholars in Winston-Salem. State Representative Amber Baker will be the Read Aloud special guest.

Winston-Salem Freedom Schools is a six-week summer program designed to increase literacy, self-esteem, socio-emotional skills, a love of learning, and civic engagement for children in grades K-12. Through a research-based and multicultural program model provided by Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) Freedom Schools, students are inspired participants, known as “scholars,” who spend their summer learning about and believing in their ability to make a difference in themselves, their families, and their communities, with hope, education, and action.

The fundraising event will showcase the Freedom School experience of Harmabee and the CDF Integrated Reading Curriculum. Culturally affirming books will be distributed while supplies last. The event will be from 3-5 p.m. The in-person location will be at Salem Chapel, 610 Coliseum Drive. Information on how to donate and attend virtually can be found at TINYURL.COM/WSFSEVENT.
