CHAIN OF ENCOURAGEMENT
WestCOP’s White Plains Community Action Partnership would like to thank the children of Project Hope for decorating the CAP’s bulletin board with a beautiful handmade Chain of Encouragement, a colorful work of art, with messages such a “I love my Mon and Dad” by Kai “Don’t Judge People” by Janay and “Be Kind” by James. For Black History Month, the children of Project Hope learn about Ruby Bridges who at age six, advanced the cause of civil rights back in November of 1960 when she became the first African American student to integrate an elementary school in the south. They did an arts and crafts showing what they learned. Project Hope is a continued partnership with the City of White Plains Youth Bureau.
