Dee’s House receives $1,000 donation from AT&T

WILSON — AT&T is helping Dee’s House connect youth to a positive educational environment.

John Lyon, AT&T regional director for external affairs, was joined by U.S. Rep. G. K. Butterfield recently in presenting $1,000 to Dee’s House. The nonprofit is a tuition-free preschool that gets children in need ready for kindergarten.

“Due to inequities in resources and opportunities, too many young people begin their educational journey already at a disadvantage compared to their peers,” Butterfield said. “That is why Dee’s House is such a vital part of our community. Dee’s House has a long record of providing the young people in Wilson with the tools and skills needed to graduate and achieve success. I thank Dee’s House, the staff and the volunteers who remain committed to uplifting Wilson’s youth year after year.”

Established in 2009, Dee’s House, located at 1306 Washington St., focuses on two primary initiatives:

• Dee’s Kids, which is a pre-K program that prepares preschoolers for a smooth transition to kindergarten by developing their skills, enriching their minds and enhancing their spirits.

• Dee’s Boyz supports males ages 8 to 24 through mentoring, tutoring, job search and job training skills.

“It is very difficult to succeed in the race of life when you begin a step behind,” said YoLanda Davis, executive director of Dee’s House. “It is our desire to close the gap with our programming, putting our youth on equal footing with their peers. We appreciate the support of the community and of leaders like Congressman Butterfield, who is such a strong advocate for our work and for our young people.”

Davis said the $1,000 AT&T contribution will be used to support ongoing programs including the successful Saturday Scholars initiative, which provides tutoring to assist students in passing and excelling at end of grade testing.

“AT&T is extremely pleased to help support Dee’s House,” Lyon said. “We believe all children can succeed and that education is the key to a person’s future. We appreciate the opportunity to assist Dee’s House in helping to make a lasting difference in the lives of these young people in Wilson.”
