This summer children in several Oaks’ programs became ROCKSTARS for a week thanks to our friends at the TJX Foundation and T.J.Maxx. The foundation generously donated $5,000 to support arts and cultural opportunities for vulnerable youth in our programs. Oaks partnered with the School of Rock in Cherry Hill to create a fun but challenging program focused teamwork through musical cohesiveness.
Many of the children participating did not have a musical background but quickly learned how to play the drums, guitar and even the harmonica. They had just five days to master their musical abilities, select a song and make t-shirts before the big performance. At the end of the week, biological and foster families were invited to School of Rock to watch the newly formed band ROCK OUT!
Thank you TJX Foundation for your generous donation and commitment to our community.
