MY Project USA Makes A Difference In Our Community Every Day!
I've Seen What It Means To Consider Everyone A Brother Or A Sister And Treat Them Accordingly
Dear MY Project USA Family,
This last year I ran for public office. Along the campaign trail, I participated in a March Against Violence on the west side of Columbus. At that event I realized that even though I had been an advocate for public education and rights of Ohio’s nearly two million children, I needed to reach out and touch the lives of individual kids that deserved an opportunity to improve their futures.
It is an honor to serve MY Project USA as the chair of the Soccer Board and member of the Board of Directors. I have grown in compassion and empathy for the less fortunate people in my community. I have seen what it means to consider everyone a brother or a sister and treat them accordingly. I have always believed that one person can make a difference. MY Project USA makes a difference in our community every day.
Please consider getting involved in your community as the rewards will far outweigh what you invest. When you see kids playing on a soccer field, remember that they are all our children – and our future.
If you are in Central Ohio, please join us at our annual dinner on February 23rd. If you are live farther and are not able to come, please consider sending your gift online here.
Treasurer, Board of Directors,
Chairman, Soccer Advisory Board, MY Project USA

The Active Shooter Training and the Hidden in Plain Sight, training for parents to understand drugs and alcohol abuse by teens these days.
This was a collaborative effort of MY Project USA, Dayton Mercy Society, Islamic Society of Greater Dayton - Bellbrook, Osman Gazi Camii and Dayton Police Department.
There are several more trainings and events like these are being scheduled at different locations throughout the city. Our goal is to build a community of well-informed, skilled and resourceful parents and youth that can keep everyone safe in the community.
