On Wednesday, May 7thChiwawa is the place to be as Teach For America takes over for the Second Year Giving Campaign.

The Second Year Giving Campaign is a fundraiser where  donations are made to incoming corps members who are moving to Memphis in June before their first paycheck in August.

Elyse Gutowski, a 2012 Memphis corps member as well as the co-chair of the Campaign says:

When I first joined the corp in 2012, I received Transitional Funding to help me move from California to Tennessee. Without this money, moving to Memphis would have been financially impossible for me and I would have had to decline my offer from TFA.  I chose to act as co-chair within this campaign so that I could actively work to solidify these funds for other potential corps members who may be in similar circumstances.  

The takeover will be from 6pm-8pm and 20% of the proceeds made will be donated to the Second Year Giving Campaign.
