The 5th annual Fundraiser Antique & Classic Car Show benefitting the after-school learning center at “Thumbs Up” was recently held in Habersham. The Car Show was sponsored in part by Butler Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep. Everyone enjoyed a lovely afternoon of fabulous cars while listening to music, munching on yummy food and thinking of times gone by.
“Thumbs Up” is a year round program that focuses on academic achievement and character development by working one on one with referred youth, their families and their teachers.
These volunteers partner with parents, who often lack the skills necessary to help their children with school work, their teachers and their schools. Referred children, ages 6-12, and their families, participate in a multi-year program that builds trusting relationships, positive parent involvement, and generates improved school results. “Thumbs Up” wants these struggling children who are at risk of failing in school, to become proficient readers, to improve their academic performance and graduate on time.
