Sky (Simple Kindness for Youth) is a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization.
To help young people build and maintain their self-esteem by providing means to access basic needs, enable them to feel accepted with their peers, and enable access to educational activities and community participation.
SKY board members are unpaid volunteers. All contributions go directly to the youth of Houghton, Baraga and Keweenaw counties.
“One of our members, for example, was working with a child, whose job it was to shovel at home, keeping the pathway clear. He had the biggest heart and felt good about the job, as that was what he could do to help his family. He wore holey shoes with wool socks over them because he had no boots.
Our member supplied him with boots. The look on the boy’s face, the smile, the thank you, big blue eyes sparkling- made her realize the things she took for granted. That is why she’s a member of our organization.”
