Lunch and Learn Series
Join us this Wednesday at 12:00 PM EST for another great Lunch and Learn. You’ll hear directly from Teaira and Brandi just how much your support of Eckerd Connects is making a lasting impact.
Teaira Reed, 25, is revered as an Eckerd Connects treasure story. After the loss of her mother Teira was left to care for her two younger sisters plus her own son. Despite the challanges presented to her Teira worked hard to provide and keep her family together. Teaira is a shining example of what the Success Award program is meant to achieve, to give our most determined and deserving youth the resources they need to reach their full potential. With the help of Eckerd Connects and our generous supporters, Teaira is now ready to conquer the world.
Brandi Haley’s home life has required her to overcome many of life’s challenges in order to succeed in reaching her own goals. Through the assistance of the WIOA Youth Program, Brandi has connected to her own potential by graduating from Veterinary Assistant training at Midlands Technical College and becoming completely self-sufficient as a result of her full-time employment at a local animal shelter.Every friend and supporter of Eckerd Connects should listen in to this live conversation.
You’ll have a chance to interact and ask questions.
