His dream is to graduate from Harford Community College with his Information Technology Systems degree and to travelling around the world DJing.
And he will in part due to the support of United Way of Central Maryland’s Tocqueville Society.
Starting when he was five years old, Deon’s mom brought him to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Harford County, a UWCM funded partner. It was a place where he was safe from the drugs and violence near his home. It was also a place where he found mentors and help with his school work. From “power hour” doing homework every day after school to robotics and fun and games, Deon’s experience at Boys and Girls Clubs gave him the tools he needed to succeed.
As UWCM’s Tocqueville Society celebrates its 25th anniversary, we’re reminded of the many people whom our $81.2 million in Tocqueville Society donations have helped get out of crisis, stay out of crisis and achieve self-sufficiency, like Deon. Thank you for making a difference in Deon’s life and in the lives of so many others.
