In keeping with the spirit of the season, the team at Motivate, Inc. joined together to put on a diaper drive for Street of Dreams. Operational since 1998, Street of Dreams is an arts education, high school to college bridge program for teen mothers who are trapped in the juvenile justice system due to the generational effects of drug addiction, alcoholism and poverty.
“It is an honor and privilege for all of us at Motivate to be working with Teresa Gunn and Street of Dreams, ” said Marcia Hansen, Principal, Motivate, Inc. “Our team rallied to the cause and I’m proud of their involvement. Giving back to our community has always been a priority of Motivate, and Street of Dreams works miracles every day of the year.”
The mission, dubbed Operation Pampers was to collect 40 packages of diapers for these teen moms and their babies. The mission was accomplished on December 12, 2013 as Team Motivate collected over 50 packages of diapers.
“Motivate made our ‘Baby Dreams’ come true this Christmas, providing $1,000 worth of diapers for our teen mother students whose children are in class with us,” said Teresa Gunn, Founder, Street of Dreams. “Thanks to Motivate, Street of Dreams is planning on having another successful year. 100% of our teen moms will complete our program , graduate from high school and enroll in college, free from the stress of having to provide diapers during school hours. Thank you, Motivate!”
