This might be a familiar scene around your house too…
While your cooking dinner for your family, kids sitting around the kitchen table doing their homework…
I remember that as a kid. My mom somehow balancing it all while simultaneously setting up for taco night and helping me create the dreaded science project.
But, there’s one family in New York that looks forward to those homework nights and loves the science project. It’s Samantha Garvey’s family. She’s one of those super smart kids. At 17 years old she’s made it to the semifinals of the prestigious national Intel science competition. Only 300 kids get to this place, and she was announced as one of the finalists last week. She’s graduating soon. She’s applied to Yale, but there’s a problem, she doesn’t know where to ask them to send the forms too. She’s homeless. Her family was evicted over the holidays.
When the community found out about her story, they came together, donated money, and found them a place to live.
Soon she will have that place to sit and do her homework…and hopefully fill out those enrollment forms for Yale, while her mom is cooking dinner.
