As we sit around our tables together with those we love this holiday season, let us all be reminded of the goodness in each other and the pride we share in serving those most vulnerable in our communities.

Every day at Campagna Academy, I am personally inspired by the hard work and dedication our staff puts forth in supporting our mission. We are in our 66th year of Restoring Hope and Building Dreams in at-risk youth and families in our community.

Over the past three-and-a-half years as chief executive officer of this compassionate organization, I have had the distinct pleasure to work with our dynamic Board of Directors, our tireless executive leadership team, many dedicated professionals and a group of volunteers who all work selflessly to provide help and hope to local at-risk youth and their families.

I often feel that the two simple words of gratitude fall short of expressing the appreciation that I feel towards all of those who help us share the power of our mission - Restoring Hope and Building Dreams - throughout the year.

We are very grateful to those of you who make our work possible: our volunteers, our partners and our donors. Without your generous gifts of time, talent, resources and funding, we could not provide the help and hope so desperately needed by the children and young adults in our community.

On their behalf, please accept our thanks for your commitment to our mission. We know that there are so many worthy charities and we are so blessed by our supporters. who have chosen Campagna Academy to contribute their dollars, their energy and their time.

We wish you and yours a healthy and prosperous New Year and may the joy that you help us share all year long be yours this holiday season. We urge you to take time to enjoy those things that make a difference and share the joy of this season with good friends and family.

From all of us at Campagna Academy – thank you!
