R.E.C. Room says ‘thank you’

There were some big smiles at the R.E.C. Room (youth Resource and Enrichment Co-op) recently.

We were all thrilled to receive a personal visit from our friends at Wells Fargo, who stopped by to present us with a generous donation to support R.E.C. Room activities. Gifts like these enable us to provide local youth ages 12-18 with a safe, fun space to hang out after school and participate in free programs on a range of topics including organic cooking, computer programming, digital music production, dealing with peer pressure and forming safe and healthy relationships.

In addition, the R.E.C. Room, which is always staffed by a youth program manager, serves as a hub to connect teens to other local resources and services in the community, from crisis intervention to help with job searches.

Would you like to see how donations to the R.E.C. Room are put into action?  Visit our blog at HomerRecRoom.org for the latest news, photos and info on how you can help.  The R.E.C. Room, at 3957 Nielson Circle off Ben Walters (next to Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic), is open Monday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.  

Many thanks, again, to all of those who choose to support youth in our community. Your kindness means so much.
