We are very excited to share the news that AMP has been awarded a $2,000 grant from the Yellow Brick Road (www.yellowbrickroadbenefitshop.org) organization of Carmel, California to support the launch of our “AMPlify Hope” program.
“AMPlify Hope” is a new training program recently launched with Hope Services of Monterey County (www.hopeservices.org). The effort will train Hope’s staff, interns and clients in the production of videos for broadcast on our channels sharing the unique stories and perceptions of persons with developmental disabilities. The grant will allow AMP staff more time and resources to extend the training being provided and to build a basis for even more ambitious plans for the future.
Yellow Brick Road (www.yellowbrickroadbenefitshop.org) is a non-profit, Christian based, charity and volunteer organization focused on providing for the physical, emotional, educational and social needs of the community. Founded in 1988 by Shirin Snyder, the wife of Pastor John Snyder, of the Carmel Presbyterian Church (www.carmelpres.org), Yellow Brick Road currently operates three shops in Carmel selling gently used clothing, furniture, books and more. All store proceeds, less operating expenses, are donated via its scholarship and grant programs. Over the past 25 years Yellow Brick Road has awarded over $5.5 Million to more than 480 Monterey County charities.
We encourage you to visit the Yellow Brick Road shops and to let them know you appreciate the support they’ve provided AMP. Consider becoming a Yellow Brick Road volunteer.
