First, thank you to our many Dream Achievers in the medical field who are on the front lines serving Austin and Central Texas providing much needed healthcare during this urgent COVID-19 crisis. I'd also like to offer encouragement to our newer Dream Achievers to hang in there, even though careers may have been put on temporary hold, Dream Come True is there for you.
The Dream Come True Foundation, now more than ever, has a place in our communities, by working with individuals of exceptional potential to move them out of poverty through education, mentoring, financial assistance, and access to community partnerships. As we continue to strive to expand Dreamer opportunities, I am thrilled to introduce our new executive director, Bob Riazzi. Bob will lead our strategic expansion along with our operations, community outreach, and fundraising. You will hear more from Bob later in the newsletter.
Our community needs us. And we need you. If you're able, please make a donation to The Dream Come True Foundation. We are also united with our Austin and global communities for #GivingTuesdayNow on May 5, 2020. Please think of us. If you're unable to donate at this time, there are many other ways to give. Sign up to mentor a Dream Achiever or volunteer for our communications team, website improvements, or Annual Fall Gala. These are all great ways to contribute!
Our Dream Achievers are our number one priority. A huge thank you to donors, mentors, volunteers, and community and corporate partners for your extraordinary gifts of money and time in support of Dream Come True. We are eternally grateful.
I hope you will share this newsletter with family and friends so that they, too, can be part of breaking the cycle of poverty.
Stay safe and stay connected,
