"We are feverishly reaching out to every resource that we can and we are hopeful that an 'angel' or 'a small group of angels' will step forward."
Leroy Baylor, a WHCR Harlem Community Radio host, noted, "Someone, somewhere, knows an intelligent athlete or entertainer who is otherwise raining money away, who will respond to the opportunity to help [HSA]. Plus, the NBA and NFL [could respond] from the monies they get from the fines levied against 'our grown children.' [Also, there is enough money to save HSA in] the district attorney's offices, which confiscates monies and goods from those that have plied drugs in our communities."
Parents, students and faculty have organized prayer and strategy circles in response to the sudden news. They are soliciting support and can be reached via e-mail at:
All parents: email@example.com
All staff: firstname.lastname@example.org
All faculty: email@example.com
Paci and Corwin said in their letter, "We will continue to tirelessly look for funds in a much more public appeal than we have in the past. This is a long shot. We cannot offer any assurances that we will succeed. The board does not want to close the doors until it is beyond a doubt that there are no donors out there who care enough and who have the ability to come forward with significant funds."
