Thumbs Up - Sharing Our Success...

Whitney Point Summer Zone Campers & Mentors were invited to the Annual Mayor’s Halloween Ball this year. Promise Zone’s ongoing partnership with the Mayor, continues to offer Whitney Point student’s opportunities to be more active within their community.
During Drop-In services at the High School, Promise Zone, MSW Interns helped student’s make their own Halloween costumes to wear to the event!
