Since the beginning of the Elizabeth Tyler Strandberg Foundation, over $33,000.00 has been donated from the Foundation to various charities throughout the country. Some of these charities include The Heartest Yard, Teton County Search and Rescue, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, The Angel Komenda Life Long funding, The Rocky Mount Dog Park, St. Andrews Church playground, and Word Tabernacle Church playground just to name a few. We wanted to highlight some of the other special charities that have been recipients:
Kate’s Club, Atlanta
Kate’s Club empowers children and teens facing life after the death of a parent or sibling. Kate’s Club has developed therapeutic programming to help our children and teens establish healthy support systems and develop the necessary skills to cope effectively with their grief – a foundation that we believe is critical to supporting children who must cope with a tragic loss. We foster positive social and emotional development through four main programs including: Support Services, therapeutic group activities designed and led by licensed professionals; Club Outings to sporting events, exhibits and community service activities around Atlanta; Camp Good Mourning, a three-day overnight summer camp at Camp Twin Lakes; and KC Connects, a collaboration with partner schools and afterschool programs to bring Kate’s Club’s services directly to grieving children.
Kate’s Club offers top quality social and therapeutic programming designed specifically for grieving children and their families. Programs are led by professionals and trained volunteers and designed and overseen by a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Recreation Therapist.
Heart Math Tutoring
To ensure that all elementary students develop the strong foundation in math and enthusiasm for academics needed for long-term success, by helping schools use volunteers as tutors. Community members commit one hour per week to deliver an effective, hands-on curriculum through one-on-one tutoring sessions during the school day in Title I elementary schools.
The Agape Village Foundation is a Christian nonprofit organization with the mission to provide loving care in a Christ-centered environment for orphaned and vulnerable children in Zambia, enabling them to thrive and to eventually become self-supporting adults.
Boys and Girls Club
Boys & Girls Clubs of The Tar River Region has an impressive history that began over 50 years ago with the establishment of the Boys Club in Rocky Mount, NC. The organization has since grown to serve thousands of young people between the ages of 5-18 in three locations (Tarboro, Rocky Mount, and Nashville) in the Twin Counties.
They provide a world class club experience that assures success is in the reach of every club member that walks through our doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.
Through the Foundation, we look forward to continue to help our youth in the ways that Tyler would have wanted. Thank you for your continued support and prayers for our family
