Summer Palooza 2017

Looking for an opportunity to give back to your community? How about building up your community by giving of your time, talents, or treasure? If so, then New Beginnings High School has the right opportunity for you through our 2nd Annual 2017 Summer Palooza event!

New Beginnings High School is a locally operated, 501(c)(3) non-profit Charter School, located in Winter Haven and Lakeland, Florida. It is the only Charter School in the Polk County area serving over 900 students, ages 15-24 years old, who have voluntarily and involuntarily parted from the Polk County Public School System. Students travel from throughout Polk County to attend New Beginnings High School.

The mission of New Beginnings High School is to serve at-risk students through a customized and systematic program that will serve directly to improve and impact the number of Polk County students obtaining their high school diploma and acquiring employable skills that will enable them to contribute to the community in which they live.

In an effort to support the continued growth of our schools throughout Polk County, New Beginnings High School is looking to host our 2nd Annual Summer Palooza event on July 29, 2017 at Simpson Park from 8:00am-1:00pm.

Last year, our attendance exceeded well over 900 families and through generous donations and contributions from local businesses and corporations, we were able to provide food, personal hygiene items, health checks, free meals, entertainment, clothing pantry and much more.

Statistics show, that of the people serviced at the event, 89% of the families had a household income of under $30,000. Furthermore, 89% of those families had a head of household under the age of 62. In addition to this, 71% of those families had a woman as the head of household. These numbers reflect the diverse population we serviced at the event.

As a valued local business and community partner, we are writing to ask for your support in providing sponsorship for the event, a cash donation, or donation of goods and services to support New Beginnings High School 2nd Annual Summer Palooza event.
