We all know it's REALLY SUPER IMPORTANT that kids have the supplies they need for school. Unfortunately, some kids in our state just don't have the access or means to get some very basic things like book bags, pencils, protractors (are those even still a thing?) etc.

One of my high school friends Lisa (GO HAMDEN GREEN DRAGONS) started an organization called ACCESS EMPOWER SUCCEED (AES) which is a non-profit that's mission is to collect school supplies and backpacks for kids.

Coming up Sunday February 9th, KC101 and AES are going to be at CITY CLIMB GYM in New Haven for a fundraiser. 50% of all admission between 11am & 3pm will go to AES. SO AWESOME! I had a nice conversation with Lisa today. She told me all about how she started this organization, how its grown in a short amount of time and what she's hoping to accomplish for the kids of New Haven County. Coming up in a few weeks, I'll have Lisa on the show to talk more about ACCESS EMPOWER SUCCEED.

Hope to see you at CITY CLIMB GYM!
