Cause for the ‘Cuse 2014

Join us for the second annual Cause for the ’Cuse, a back-to-school clothing and supply drive to benefit students in the Syracuse City School District.

DATES: Fundraising concluded ; delivery is currently underway.

WHAT WE COLLECTED: School supplies, backpacks, and clothing of all kinds, especially basics (underwear, socks, pants, shirts, jackets, hats, gloves). Monetary donations were also accepted through our YouCaring page; all donations were used to purchase school supplies and clothing. In total, donations exceeded $20,000 — nearly triple what was raised in 2013.

Terakeet has deep roots in the Syracuse area. We value the sense of community we’ve developed as an organization and we feel the closeness of a family. One thing communities and families do is come together to support each other, and we believe our strength is rooted in the ways in which we empower one another to succeed.

Natives and transplants alike, we all love this city and call it home. With everything Syracuse has done for us, it’s time for us to give back. We want to ensure Syracuse students enjoy the same opportunities this city has given us and have the resources necessary to develop their own paths to success–but we can’t do it alone.

Thanks everyone for your support! Together, we made Cause for the ’Cuse 2014 even bigger and better than last year.
