There’s often more joy in giving than receiving. This holiday season, CLIMB graduates in Cheyenne experienced how fulfilling it is to give back when they donated clothing and toys to families currently participating in CLIMB.

It wasn’t too long ago that these single mothers were struggling themselves, worried about providing a memorable holiday for their kids.

“This group of graduates reached out to ask how they could help,” says Molly Kruger, CLIMB’s Cheyenne program director. “They understand the rigors of being a full-time single mom while attending CLIMB training.

“It’s such a great example of the ripple effect CLIMB has in our community. Now that these graduates have stable employment, they’re discovering how empowering it is to be in a financial position to give back.”

Average monthly wages double for CLIMB participants 24 months after completing the program. Many reach self-sufficiency for the first time in their lives.

Help us spread this spirit of generosity! Your end-of-year donation to CLIMB will be matched!
