During Physical Education yesterday, our students had a blast dancing along to some “Just Dance” videos. When a student suggested “Butter” by BTS, the students all jumped up in excited—especially David Y. and Daniel C.! Typically, our students follow along with the P.E. video and then finish for the day, but today we had a special dance time and all the students enjoyed it. They were bringing props, such as hats and sunglasses, and then they danced throughout the entire song. We loved seeing the students enjoy their time and bring laughter into the Zoom room.

For the past week, we have been extremely thankful for Duogreen’s generous donations. Because of Duogreen’s thoughtfulness of donating sanitizing wipes and sanitizer gels to us at Give Chances, we have been able to reach out to places in need. We have made donations to Paterson Elementary School located in Palisades Park, New Jersey, where we have been in contact for a while regarding our after-school benefits and program details. We also made donations to Damavan Promise Church, Blessing Church, and Sungdo Church! Meeting everyone from the churches and school was an unforgettable experience for us that we hope to keep in touch with every connection we make because of these donations! Thank you Duogreen and to everyone who helped us spread these donations to places that needed them the most!
Chance Makers Volunteer Council Appointment Ceremony was held on July 14th. Our new appointed board members had their first meeting to get acquainted with each other and staff. First, each volunteer introduced themselves and played getting to know you activities to break the ice! Staff members also handed out Certification of Appointments and gifts to congratulate them. Each gift included a newly designed Chance Makers Shirt, an Iottie Wireless Charger, Sunscreen, and a set of the DDartists greeting cards! Afterwards, the volunteers decided responsibilities for each council group and then made a decision about the first official board meeting date. The volunteers and staff members had a wonderful dinner together while getting to know each other more! We are so excited to get the council started!
