Help SCAN make the holidays bright for children across Richmond.

Join us
Wednesday December 9th
from 6-9pm

for a toy drive at Metro Bar & Grill, benefiting SCAN's Santa Shop, hosted by SCAN's Board of Young Professionals.
 
We will be accepting donations of new unwrapped toys for children age 0-17, as well as wrapping supplies to help us wrap gifts (wrapping paper, scissors, tape, and sticker gift tags). We will also accept gift card donations and monetary donations to help us purchase supplies and other needed toys for children.

During the Santa Shop event, families served by SCAN are able to "shop" for new toys and have them gift wrapped to take home. While parents and guardians shop, children enjoy holiday movies, snacks, hot cocoa, holiday crafts and pictures with Santa.

Thank you for joining us at the screening of Paper Tigers, a powerful film on the nation's first  
trauma-informed high school.

Paper Tigers is an intimate look into the lives of selected students at Lincoln High School, an alternative school that specializes in educating traumatized youth. Set amidst the struggling rural community of Walla Walla, WA, the film intimately examines the inspiring promise of Trauma-Informed Communities - a movement that is showing great promise in healing youth struggling with the dark legacy of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Following six students over the course of a school year, we see Lincoln's staff try a new approach to discipline: one based on understanding and treatment rather than judgment and suspension. Using a combination of verite and revealing diary cam footage, Paper Tigers is a testament to what the latest developmental science is showing: that just one caring adult can help break the cycle of adversity in a young person's life.

We had an overwhelming response, with more than 250 guests attending.

Thank you to The Jenkins Foundation for partnering with SCAN to make this screening possible, and the Robinson Theater Community Arts Center for hosting us at your wonderful theater.

We are thankful for the opportunity to continue the movement of trauma-informed care for children, and plan to hold future screenings of this film next year.
 
Thank you to Blue Sky Fund and Anna Julia Cooper Episcopal School for the donation of chairs.

BYP Member Wilson Flohr


Wilson Flohr, current Vice-Chair of SCAN's Board of Young Professionals (BYP), continues his third year on the BYP with ongoing support of SCAN's mission.

"As a member of the BYP, I hope to engage more young professionals within the community to become involved with non-profit organizations," Wilson said. "I enjoy introducing my peers to SCAN, while showing them that their support helps SCAN do so much within the community."

During his time on the BYP, Wilson has been actively involved in many of SCAN's fundraising events and volunteer opportunities. Whether it's chairing the auction for the BYP Annual Fundraiser, or showing support during a volunteer opportunity, Wilson always brings a high level of dedication and support to SCAN.

"I think it's so important to give children a voice, and SCAN's five programs are able to do that," Wilson said. "There are many ways to help support SCAN, whether it's fundraising, volunteering your time, or raising awareness."
