ABOUT THIS SERIES: Founded in 2007, Food Brings Hope provides afterschool programs in 27 schools in Volusia County and two in Flagler County. The programs provide at-risk students opportunities to improve grades, have fun, and receive nourishing food. Throughout the holidays, The News-Journal is highlighting the program by publishing the stories of some of its young participants. For more information, visit foodbringshope.org.
My name is Denny Gordon. I am 12 years old, attend Campbell Middle School and have been involved with Food Brings Hope since fifth grade. FBH helps me do better in school because this year they have a Homework Helpline that I can call four days a week at 5:30 p.m. and get help with my schoolwork. I enjoy TeenZone and have made six new friends since joining.
Dentonie and Denty are my two brothers and my sister's name is Dentonae. Spending time with my family is my favorite thing to do during the holidays.
If I could receive anything I wished for at Christmas, I would like a laptop computer. Since math is my favorite subject in school, and I want to be a programmer when I get older, having my very own laptop would help me learn more.
FBH helps kids out who don't have much. Teen Zone helps me in many ways, but the most important thing is helping me on homework and with my classwork.
