SOW 2 SOAR
Sow 2 Soar is a scholarship program benefiting high school cheerleaders. The purpose is to provide cash resources to entering freshmen who need essential supplies during their first college semester.
Any cheer parent will tell you that cheerleaders are athletes too. They endure pain and sacrifice, and are just as committed as the players on the field or the court...while doing it with style and grace.
Please join us in honoring and supporting those who embody the very soul and spirit of our beloved games.
After speaking with a group of 5th graders about the power of self respect and pride, Founder, Monique Ross saw apprehension on the faces of some students. It was clear that a few did not live in environments where such basic needs were provided.
Knowing the impact caused by the lack of items that seem mundane to many of us, she asked a teacher if it was feasible to house a Hygiene Closet in the classroom. This way, students with the greatest needs could discretely access items like deodorant, feminine products, combs, brushes, toothbrushes toothpaste and floss.
Please Contact Us if you are interested in donating to a local Hygiene Closet.
