Honor CLASP volunteers at afternoon celebration

The Claremont After School Program will honor Carole Harter and Maureen Beith, whose vision of an intergenerational program launched the CLASP summer camp at Mt. San Antonio Gardens senior community. The celebration will take place Sunday, November 11 from 2 to 4 p.m. at Garner House in Memorial Park, 840 N. Indian Hill Blvd., in Claremont.

In five neighborhood programs, CLASP provides supportive settings for academically at-risk children from all of Claremont’s public elementary schools, so that the students may gain the academic guidance and personal mentoring to be successful in school and in life. The programs offer homework help, recreation, enrichment activities and healthy snacks for two hours per day, three days a week. Transportation is also provided at four of the centers.

CLASP is a nonprofit organization that collaborates with the city of Claremont and the Claremont Unified School District, as well as local businesses, nonprofits and regional foundations. Individual donations are a major portion of CLASP’S budget. 

The event will offer gourmet delights, wine and live music. Make a reservation at clasp4kids.org by November 2. For volunteer opportunities,  call (909) 204-0127 or email clasp.office@gmail.com.
