I helped create a legacy by leaving a future generation of boys to take over for us.
Our impact spread as far as Minnesota where a group of
kids mirrored our program.
I LEARNED FUNDRAISING WORKS AND IS WORK
Lemonade Stands, Sports Swaps, Garage Sales, and more. I learned how to advertise and I learned how to say Thank you to everyone who helped us along the way.
My name is Sam Reynolds and I am a founder of Ten Boys Who Care. What has this experience meant to me?
I LEARNED HOW OUR GROUP COULD HELP OTHER GROUPS IN OUR COMMUNITY
When new families moved into our school district, I helped deliver welcome baskets for SCHOOLPOWER. When a fallen officer was honored we helped with the event's silent auction.
I LEARNED HOW TO WRITE A GRANT PROPOSAL
I wrote applications for 4 different grants. We finally were awarded a $500 grant from Disney's Be Inspired program.
Founder, Grant Writer, Past President, Past Treasurer, and Fundraising Co-Chair

I took away barriers by doing more.
I helped 15 grads
go to college.
I also learned to stand and present to an audience of 300+.
I read over 150 essay applications over 5 years. I learned how to assess these graduates growth and I grew a little more each time I read one.
