The winter holiday season is fast-approaching. In the spirit of the season, New York Junior Tennis & Learning is taking part in the third annual day of giving, called #GivingTuesday, on Tuesday, December 2.
This day is devoted to inspire giving and create a better world. That speaks directly to our mission. For more than 40 years, NYJTL has endeavored to bring the joys of tennis and education to underserved youth.
Together, we are changing the lives of inner-city youth, providing them with the necessary tools they will need to excel on and off the court.
The words of Arthur Ashe speak of the difference a person can make in this world. “Start where you are. Use what you have," he once said. "Do what you can.”
I encourage all New Yorkers to mark their calendars for Tuesday, December 2, seek an opportunity to channel the generous spirit of the season, and make a meaningful difference.
