Children, Families, and Individuals
affected by social and economic problems
Dear Peace Family — Please Join Us for Thanks for Giving on November 17th!
We’re excited to gather our Peace Neighborhood Family together again in person at a fun new community space. The creative venue, great food, good friends, and the chance to connect with one another in person again all promise to be spectacular!
I say this every year, but it still holds true. We have a lot to be thankful for! Our After-School Programs are back in full swing, and Peace kids are excited to be here. Their smiles and enthusiastic greetings are contagious, and
our staff are happy to welcome them everyday.
We’re thankful for your faith in Peace Neighborhood Center as we work together to help people change the trajectory of their lives. Everything we do here at Peace comes from a genuine place of love and caring. And we continue to seek the greatness in everybody, no
matter who they are or where they’re from. We know that without practicing mutual respect and understanding, it’s hard to accomplish anything.
I’m thankful for your continuing generosity, which ensures our kids and families have the support they need to build bright futures for themselves.
And I’m grateful for our entire Peace Family, and the role you’ve played in our success these last 51 years. We have a lot to be thankful for and a lot to celebrate. I hope to see you November 17th!
Peace and Blessings,
Bonnie Billups, Jr.

As we face the ongoing challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to work with our youth and families—many of whom have experienced extraordinary hardships. We continue to prioritize programming, as well as invest in new initiatives:
- Academic support for youth, including investments in early literacy and child development
- Expanded food distribution and emergency assistance
- A new wellness program to improve our youth and families’ physical, nutritional, and mental health
- Transformational road trips that give older youth extraordinary learning experiences beyond our neighborhood
Please consider a gift to Peace Neighborhood Center through the secure link below. With your continuing support, Peace can continue to change lives. Thank you!
