Giving Party

My name is Kedarious Colbert, Founder of Academic and Community Empowerment (ACE). 

Academic and Community Empowerment is an organization committed to providing academic support and access to community resources for young men and women of color throughout the Longview, Texas community. 

This year, we are seeking to provide 27 college-bound  young men and women of color -  with a "1st Year of College Kit." 

Each kit (as seen in the video) is estimated to cost $50.00.  Beginning July 1st - July 17th, 2016 we will accept monetary donations via GoFundMe for the purchase of those items.  

On Sunday, July 24th, 2016 we will host a "GIVING PARTY" at Stamper Park Community Center from 1PM-4PM. At this event, we will accept donations of all essential items (see list below) and construct the baskets during that time. 

During the month of August, we will provide gift these "1st Year College Kits" to the college-bound young men and women. 

July 1st, 2016 is also my birthday; I'll be 27. Giving back to the Longview, Texas community is something that I value doing because it's such a giving community. 

Your donations will assist a young man or woman in unimaginable ways. 

Thanks in advance for your support of our mission and contribution to the Longview, Texas community.
