17 Dec 2019 – Teens with Promise Gift Wishes
Giving back this holiday season with teens with promise
Teens who are homeless, or living in poverty, are the most forgotten group during the holiday season. For over 5 years, the Summit Technical Solutions team in Colorado Springs has worked specifically to support teens in our community by filling holiday wishes through the Teen’s with Promise (TWP) Holiday Wish program. Teens with Promise is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to enhance development and build resiliency among disadvantaged and homeless teens in the Colorado Springs area. The organization operates a volunteer-based office, and is dedicated to providing teenagers with the supplies they need to start and stay in school. Each year the program collects holiday wishes from teens who may not otherwise receive a gift for the holidays, and every individual on the STS team works to fill each one with love. This year, the STS team filled gift-bags and wishes for dozens of teens who wished for anything from gift cards for gas or books, to clothing, sports equipment, headphones, games, and art supplies.
The Teens with Promise organizational mission is to advocate for at-risk teens by creating and enhancing opportunities to complete their education, while promoting recreation and social activities. STS is dedicated to supporting community projects that aligns with our core values. STS is committed to enabling the financial independence of women, supporting veterans and service members who are deserving of our dedication and appreciation, and supporting educational development, opportunities, and equal access for children and adolescents in our communities. This yearly tradition is just one way that the STS team continues to give back to our community in Colorado Springs.
