Cargill supports Wake County tutoring programs

Posted June 16, 2009

— Cargill has donated $30,000 to two tutoring programs in the Raleigh area.

At Boys & Girls Clubs of Wake County, money from Cargill will go toward the Power Hour program. Power Hour is a year-round, incentive-based tutoring program for Boys & Girls Club members ages six to 18. Students receive homework assistance, and staff members track students’ progress and provide support.

Cargill also donated funds to the System’s School/Community Helping Hands Mentoring Program (S/CHHMP) of the Wake County Public School System, which provides support services to African-American male students. Funding from Cargill assisted the S/CHHMP with providing a North Carolina End-of-Grade Tutorial Program to create additional opportunities to prepare students for standardized testing.

    And they also support engulfing several blocks south of downtown with a stink cloud to make them uninhabitable. Hooray!

    This in turn has handed the area between Blount and Person south of MLK over to gangs and prostitutes, which is why no one knows why the warehouse burned down last week and Greyhound/Trailways is abandoning the repair facility it used to have there.
