>Today ASSET received a $25 donation from Maurita Goodman. In addition, Shara Haq has continued to sell beads for ASSET’s Bead to Read program along with a social worker named Barb Anderson. ASSET is grateful to all these wonderful people for their donated time, effort and resources.

We have been busy at ASSET selecting our first two beneficiaries. The donations received to date have already been used to help cover tuition and other educational costs for two intelligent young men. In the coming weeks, we will introduce Chris M. and Julius K. to our blog readers. We will be posting highlights from the intake interviews, which were a central component of the beneficiary selection process. We hope that you will enjoy learning more about our beneficiaries and their lives and goals.

To help our donors and blog readers stay informed on progress, we will be posting messages from ASSET beneficiaries from time to time.
