Dear Friend of the Armory,
The school year is coming to an end and we are busy with our final push to get our student-athletes across the finish line to college. Over 75% are now accepted and we are very confident of the remaining students. We need your financial help to keep this hope alive. The summer enrichment program is crucial for our Juniors who seek early acceptance. We receive no public funding and depend on the generosity of people like yourselves. If you haven't given yet, please consider a donation now. There are few greater causes.
