Homework Help at the Pomona Public Library
Yesterday Daniel, who is our Homework Help Center coordinator, told us there is no more funding for this program.
Daniel brought this letter with him and posted it for all to see. Here is the letter:
Dear Community Members:
We regret to inform you that the Pomona Homework Help Center at the Pomona Public Library will be closed after June 3, 2010. The Center for Community-Service-Learning at Cal Poly Pomona has sponsored the Homework Help Center through an AmeriCorps Grant since 2007. Unfortunately, this coming year we were not funded due to the difficult budget cuts effecting Cal Poly Pomona. Our Center will not have the funds and staff to support the Homework Help Center next year. It has been a pleasure working with the staff at the Pomona Public Library and the children who have participated in our many activities.
Dr. Gibert Cadena
Daniel James Zeleznik
AmeriCorps Promise Fellow
Coordinator, Pomona Homework Help Center
It is a sad day indeed.
I don't have the heart for a joke of the day. :(
