Precision Frac Gives Back in the Big Apple: Part 1
On December 12th, the #12DaysofGiving Campaign brought Precision Frac and Karmic Energy to New York City, where the team made donations to the Harlem Children’s Zone and The Bowery Mission.
Early in the day, CEO Jared Davis, President Trent Crawford, Jared’s son Gavin, publicist Razonia McClellan, Brant Farrar, and Razonia’s son Ryker delivered 300 coats to Harlem Children’s Zone. Harlem Children’s Zone disrupts the cycle of generational poverty in Central Harlem by helping kids get the support they need to get to and through college.
The organization works with more than 12,000 youth, and its programs help build community and character on an unprecedented scale, making it a national model in education, youth, community development, and the fight against poverty.
The Harlem Children’s Zone couldn’t have been more hospitable, offering Jared and team a private tour of the Promise Academy Charter School, a unique school dedicated to helping children K-12 to not only successfully graduate from high school, but attend college, while offering much-needed support throughout their college career. Promise Academy currently has 881 students attending college.
Each school day, Promise Academy provides K-12 students with two meals and one snack prepared with fresh, locally grown ingredients. They also educate them on the importance of healthy eating, taking care of their bodies, and provide them with recipes (that students hopefully share with parents) to encourage healthy eating at home.
Students and their families also have access to a system of support from Harlem Children’s Zone counselors. This keeps students engaged while on the path for high school and college graduation. Visiting HCZ was an eye-opening experience for the Precision Frac and Karmic Energy team.
Come back soon to read about how The Bowery Mission serves homeless, hungry, and poor New Yorkers, and what Precision Frac and Karmic Energy learned from serving — and enjoying a meal with — New York City’s homeless.
