Thanks for considering donating to #1stSaturdays (see twitter.com/1stsaturdays for updates) and the website 1stSaturdays.com) a program of The Familyhood Connection Inc.
Our mission is to promote programs that bring the generations together to improve communities.
In one word we call this vision #Familyhood (see twitter.com/familyhood for updates).
#Familyhood, according to David N. Roach, Founding Director of The Familyhood Connection Inc, is a community development strategy that defines schools as the center for community development.
#Familyhood is driven by two motto’s.
1) The Friends of school motto: which states, “every school shall have a functioning student government Association, Parent Teacher Association and Alumni Association.
2) The Mo’ Better Food motto: which states: “every school shall have a garden, a farmers market and a grocery store.”
#1stSaturdays is the “do now” strategy to advance a community towards #Familyhood.
#1stSaturdays represents the first Saturday of every month as the official monthly volunteer /recruitment day at schools.
In short, #Familyhood promotes collaboration between the three main school based organizations of motto 1 – (student government association, parent teacher association and alumni) to work own/operate their school garden, farmers market and grocery store.
