December 2012 Newsletter

It’s that time of the year again: the most Wonderful time!

For most, the holidays are a time to give. Many search for the “perfect gift” to give to their loves ones. Others take this time to give to those who may be less fortunate than they are.

At Firewall Centers, we not only give during the holiday season, but every day throughout the year. We have been called to give the gift of hope to almost 150 students across South Florida. Each student that walks through Firewall’s doors is given an opportunity for academic success while building their character. And this is the recipe that ultimately results in their life transformation.

Please consider Firewall Centers as you search for an organization or cause to give to this Christmas season. Right now, your investment will be doubled dollar-for-dollar up to $50,000 by some of Firewall’s most faithful friends. Your support is vital to our continued expansion and the furthering our mission of transforming students into servant leaders.

With this thought in mind, we would like to share with you the stories of three more of our Servant Leaders. Thank you for all that you do for Firewall Centers and its students. We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

 Servant Leader Stories

Davie Middle School Center: First quarter Servant Leader Kyle, a 7th grade Firewall student, says:

“I had wanted to come to Firewall since my brother Kirk started to come when I was still in elementary. I have goals, and each quarter I set them. At Firewall, there are great people that push me to reach them.

Davie High School CenterKenneth is another one of Firewall’s Servant Leaders for this school year’s first quarter. His words:

“Firewall helped me to be a better student and a better person by helping me solve problems and realize that I can make a better future for myself.”

Hollywood Middle School Center: First quarter’s Servant Leader, Kaylianna, has this to say about her Firewall Center:

Firewall has helped me get better grades and learn self-control. They help me understand who I am. When I come after school, I think about how all of the students and staff light up my day and make me feel welcome. If I have a question and I might feel uncomfortable asking, the staff will talk to me privately and not make fun of me. Even when I am not around or late, the staff won’t get mad. Everyone is polite. Firewall has also helped me learn the 4 things that are important and part of the word FIRE: Faith, Integrity, Relationship, and Excellence, which I will always remember.”
