Support Vanguard High School’s Backpacking Program
CFSBKer Matthew E. has been backpacking, climbing, hunting, and enjoying the outdoors since he was a child. When he began teaching at an NYC public school, he was horrified at his students’ limited exposure to the outdoors. Some of them had never been outside the city, let alone in the woods. To reconcile this deficiency, Matthew helped organize and lead a backpacking trip for 20 students to the Appalachian Trail. It was an incredible experience. All materials were donated or loaned from teachers, staff, and friends. To make this a sustainable project, Vanguard is hoping to raise $5,000. They are currently half way there! Help them out by making a donation or spreading the word! Learn more here.
