CARVE FOR A CAUSE 2018
12th ANNUAL PUMPKIN CARVING FESTIVAL
Carve for a Cause will proudly help launch this critical pilot program:
Peaceful Guardian Project
The goal of the Peaceful Guardian Project is to bridge the often tense divide between police officers and youth of color. It will enable police officers as well as African-Americanand Latino youth to put their best selves forward in support of one another.
This is done through a compelling and comprehensive 12-week program, whereby officers and youth become both teachers and learners through a mutually supportivelearning environment fostering greater understanding, empathy and trust.
While the PGP initiative will begin in the City of Kingston, their long-term strategic plan
includes replicating this model in similar cities across the Hudson Valley and NY State.
We would like to Thank you for helping us to “Celebrate the Harvest and Share The Bounty”
