Rochester Irish Dance
I was smiling as I decorated the studio yesterday for Valentine's Day. I have found abundant love in the Dunleavy community time and time again; that hanging hand-made hearts from the ceiling seemed more like feelings being manifested into something tangible than merely a holiday decoration. In the spirit of Valentine's Day I thought Dunleavy Irish Dance could start a penny drive to donate to the Rochester non-profit Refugees Helping Refugees. I recently started volunteering there through the Bridges Program at Our Lady of Mercy. Over the past few months I've seen how the students in this program cherish their learning. It provides essential survival skills for their new lives in the Untied States. Encouraging children to donate pennies reinforces the culture of giving at a young age and the mindset that no donation is too small to make a difference. You can also bring in pens, pencils, notebooks, notecards, books, workbooks, or other learning supplies and I will deliver them to the Refugee Center. Together we can make a positive impact and help empower lives.
