Two months ago today we launched Garsnett Beacon Candle Co. It has been an incredible start that could not be possible without your support. Part of our mission is to give back to our community by donating a portion of proceeds from every sale. Every two months we will make a donation to a different cause. Thanks to your generosity we have made our first donation to I Am Academy.
I AM Academy is an organization that will help to dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline systems within educational institutions through mentorships with students and community partnerships. Partnering with area schools, I AM Academy empowers African American adolescents and young adults to achieve their full potential by centering their identity, cultivating relationships, supporting educational success, providing college experiences, and facilitating job readiness; ultimately changing the narrative and trajectory of their community.
