Maytag Salutes: Edward Harrison
03 May, 2016
Name: Edward Harrison
Hometown: New Castle, DE
Why we are saluting Edward:
Edward has gotten to where he is today because of his mother who raised him and his three sisters alone. Her love for the welfare of our community is what she left him. In her eyes, our greatest asset as people are our children.
He is also active running a similar daycare and after school program and raising funds to build a new library in New Castle, DE. His school sets aside a Sunday to provide kids, who cannot afford it, free haircuts for the beginning of the school year. .
He is starting a non-profit organization, 1down1milliontogo, which will launch soon. This will be a mentoring organization which is being designed to change the destructive culture our youths have developed and to present life’s options that may not have previously been presented.
