July 26, 2017 Best part of the year as ThreadED doubled our scholarships given in partnership with uAspire. Our nonprofit funded six ThreadED Scholars for 2017. Last week, we had a wonderful afternoon celebrating our secondyear supporting Boston area students as they begin college. Thanks to all our "ecosystem", living near and far, who helped ThreadED support more aspiring college students. Co-Founders Gail Harris and Laurel Sgan are shown here with three of the terrific students who received ThreadED scholarships via uAspire's Last Dollar Scholarship Program. These scholarships bridge the last, challenging "family commitment" gap that the students and their families must fill in their financial aid packages. Connor is heading to Suffolk University while Esmerelda and Amanda will start at Bridgewater State University in late August.
Our partnership continues to evolve and through uAspire, our "ecosystem" of donors and supporters is growing! We will have more positive news to share in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
Sales almost quadrupled since last year!
