The Twelve Days of Yule: Day 9, December 29

Nine Drummers Drumming

COA Youth & Family Centers

With all this drumming, I wanted to find an initiative in support of music. Howwww-ever: that was easier said than done (seriously). One organization that counts music programming as one among many is the COA Youth & Family Centers. They have outreach programs for Milwaukee youth, their families, and their communities, ranging from early childhood development, youth leadership, to a neighborhood medical clinic. And music. 

COA Youth & Family Centers has been providing outreach to families in poverty since 1906, a fact that both impresses me by its history, and depresses me that we are still working to bring people out of poverty. But work at it we must, one generation at a time. As Craig Ferguson would say, "keep banging on your drum."

Charity Navigator: four (of four) star rating

Twelve Days of Yule = Twelve Days of Giving is a personal initiative by me at the SoMil Homesteader to bring some focus to a holiday about gratitude. I don't have any official connections to any of these organizations, other than being a very small donor. Peace out.
