Wings For LIFE International’s mission is to transform lives to break the generational cycle of incarceration. Wings springs from the passion of caring people and the deep concern we must help families of prisoners who have been largely shunned or ignored by our society. In our society where children are all at risk in one way or another, children whose parent(s) are in prison, face even more challenges. Wings provides an arena for effective ways to rebuild assets in the lives of our young people, which can greatly reduce or prevent their involvement in at-risk behaviors. wingsforlifeinternational.org

Class of 2022-23 Springer High School Seniors (3 under-privileged young men) to be considered for our donation. These are 3- 4.0 students who are fundraising for their senior trips. All three boys have faced major hardship- one was a victim of domestic violence and is now living alone at age 17. The next young man is an orphan, losing one parent in Afghanistan- military (dad) as an infant and his mom last year to Covid. The last is a child to a teen mother that chose him over terrible circumstances. All the young men have great potential, and I am trying to help them have a great memory from high school considering all the awful things they have faced. I am paying for their flights, and I am working to get the rest of their travel funding in place. They are wanting to go to Disneyland for their senior trip and none have ever travelled out of NM.

It also helps keep children, who might not go to class because of their clothes, stay in school. It is crucial to us that each student is treated with the utmost respect and kindness and leaves Locker #505 feeling good. 501 (c) 3 Charity www.locker505.org
