Community donations have helped over 30,000 men, women, and children since inception. Giving Back Campaigns are coordinated throughout the year to encourage others to help those in need. The campaigns are donation drives which provide youth, homeless and transitional shelters with the necessities for individuals and families. There are two yearly drives -- a Back-to-School Drive from July through August to collect school supplies and another drive for the Holiday season from November through December. With the help of our partners, both annual drives are supported throughout the state.
The PMJ Foundation works diligently to provide programs and resources for low income families, especially our youth. Education is the key to success for today's youth. Unfortunately, many students attend school under challenging circumstances and need support. Many need to overcome an obstacle course of economic distress, domestic instability, community violence and a lack of resources. Our programs are designed to help students be successful in their academic course of study while engaging, empowering and stabilizing families as they build brighter futures.
Together, we can present possibilities for a brighter future for our at-risk youth while changing our own. It just takes you.
CAREER AWARENESS PROJECT (CAP)
The PMJ Foundation’s Career Awareness Project (CAP) program is a unique after-school program that brings professionals from the outside world to funded Baltimore City and County Schools. CAP is specifically designed to benefit at-risk youth in schools where much of the population is at or below poverty level and resources are limited. Since being developed and implemented in 2006, CAP has seen a dramatic increase in academic performance, attendance, and a decrease in school drop-out rates. We have proudly served nearly a thousand students in fifth grade and middle school. All sponsorship levels are 100% tax deductible.
