Hi, my name is ________ and I am calling with a message for the Mayor:
The Preliminary Budget eliminates summer camp for 34,000 middle school children. I am calling to urge the Mayor to ensure the upcoming Executive Budget includes funding so that these middle school students have a safe and stimulating place to be while their parents are working this summer. Children who need a safe place after school, also need a program in July and August.
Note: You can also TEXT 311 at 311-692
SAMPLE TEXT: Mayor de Blasio – Please restore summer camp programs for at least 34,000 children. These children and their families are counting on you.
