Impactober is an annual initiative that dedicates each October to an area of focus that empowers community by becoming an epicenter that promotes holistic living.
The goal of Impactober this year, is to raise $600,000 to support projects geared toward youth development and community engagement.
The funds will support construction of a student center that will feature an NBA-sized gymnasium. The gymnasium will house a multipurpose court for indoor sports including but not limited to basketball, soccer, gymnastics and volleyball.. The facility will also feature locker rooms, weight-training rooms, and concession stand.
The student center, which will be open 24/7, will add value to the community as it will create jobs, serve as a venue for various events, and provide the youth with an alternative to detention centers and jails.
Our Community's per capita income in 2017 was $22,050How can a person live remarkably with this income? Exactly! This disparity with the rest of our city is unacceptable, and it compels us to act – today. act now - give $100
“Every small act of generosity will help us to meet our goal to enrich the
lives of the youth and children of our city.”
