South Mountain YMCA and SOMA Middle Schools Raising Money for the Community Coalition on Race with ‘Concert of Hope’

South Orange and Maplewood Middle Schools are collaborating with the South Mountain YMCA to inspire students to share their voice while raising money for the Community Coalition on Race.

Students of both schools have been engaged in expressing themselves by writing poems for the Concert of Hope and to be published in an anthology. These poems embrace the thoughts and feelings about the events that have unfolded over these challenging months.

The schools will then choose ten writers for the Concert of Hope: a live streaming poetry reading event on Saturday July 18th at 7:00pm on all south mountain ymca social media platforms.

Every dollar donated will be donated to the Community Coalition on Race.
