November 2013 Newsletter

This Thanksgiving, we are most grateful for you and your support!

Student -to- Leader Luncheon
We were honored and humbled at the overwhelming support received at our third annual Student-to-Leader Luncheon. On Thursday, November 7th, a record-breaking number of Firewall’s friends gathered at the Signature Grand to raise awareness and funding for our program that empowers students to not only survive, but thrive.

Thanks to a generous $50,000 match from a local family foundation, together with the support of those in attendance, we were able to raise over $100,000 that will allow us to continue to serve our 250 students every day! We want to acknowledge the generosity of Regent Bank for their sponsorship in making this event possible.

The program began with a powerful testimony from Fabiola Cunningham, who has been a Firewall Mentor for two years. She shared how her job as a positive role model and tutor at Firewall has helped her become a better mom to her own children.

Servant Leader Spotlight:  MALACHI

As some of you know, every center chooses a Servant Leader of the Quarter. At Pompano Beach Middle School Eighth grader Malachi shares how Firewall has helped him become a better servant leader.

“Firewall is helping me in many ways. It is helping my academics, my prospect on life, and also my seriousness about school. Before I joined Firewall, I wasn’t really that serious about school. Academically I was a mediocre person. Until my friend told me about this program, I had no idea what to expect. I thought it would just be another thing that I quit on again, but the support I have from the staff has made me a new person. Firewall helps us have responsibility, discipline, and integrity.”


Matching Challenge Keeps the Fire Burning!

As the end of the year quickly approaches, we would like to share with you a tremendous opportunity that God has provided for us to end the year strong and help prepare us to transform even more lives next year. Friends of Firewall have come together and committed to match every dollar given to Firewall between now and the end of the year. That means your investment in Firewall’s students right now will automatically be doubled dollar-for-dollar, up to $20,000!
