The Brielle Sky Foundation was founded in July 2018 with the collaboration of myself and my 9-year-old daughter Brielle Sky Gamble.
We sat around one day thinking about what we could do to give back to the community and help kids of all ages. Since it was the summertime, we decided that providing backpacks for less fortunate kids in the area where I grew up in would be a great start. We sought out the assistance of the Community Opportunity Center, Sleepy Hollow Police and Tarrytown Police to carry out our mission. With a few phone calls to the Police Department’s PBA Presidents and letters sent to the Chiefs of Police, we were able to launch our first backpack giveaway on August 18, 2018. On that date we handed out over 200 backpacks to kids from the Sleepy Hollow/Tarrytown communities.
With that success, we decide to continue our efforts in giving back. In December of 2018, we conducted toy drive along with the Mount Vernon PBA where we handed out toys to children in after school programs at Edward Williams Elementary School and Hamilton Elementary School.
After that successful mission, we decided that we were going to try to support as many holidays as we could throughout the year. In March 2019, we collaborated again with the Mount Vernon PBA where we handed out over 120 Easter Baskets to the after-school program at Edward Williams Elementary School in Mount Vernon.
With a few missions under our belt, we decided to continue the backpack giveaway for the 2019 school year. So on August 23, 2019, we continued our efforts to support the Sleepy Hollow/Tarrytown communities by giving out over 300 backpacks to the kids to start the school year. After a compete year of giving back, we decided that we will continue to support kids in communities throughout Westchester County in any way that we can.
Thank you to the Community Opportunity Center, Sleepy Hollow Police, Tarrytown Police and Mount Vernon Police for your continued support.
