Did you know you can still make a meaningful impact even while social distancing? Here are some important ways YOU can help support Youth Services and our programs during this crucial time.
Secure an item for our Spring Gala Online Auction – We have had to reimagine our annual Spring Gala, which will now consist of an online auction to be held this June (date TBD). Our auction will be more important than ever in helping us fund our programs. Click here for the auction donation form.
Create a Facebook Fundraising Campaign – If you are looking for a quick and easy way to encourage others to give, utilize the “Facebook Fundraising” App. Many donors like the ease of this quick transaction and you can set it up to post reminders to your followers. Click here to learn more about how to set-up a Facebook Fundraiser. Note: Facebook does not take out transaction fees for non-profits.
Study Buddies Program – Look for or create material we can use for this free academic program. For example, create trivia sheets for 5th grade through middle school with topics like sports (especially soccer) or current pop questions. You can also create or find brain teasers and crosswords puzzles for 4th grade and up.
Thank you notes – Thanking others is an important part of our relationship with our sponsors, donors and volunteers. Help us spread the love by writing or decorating thank you notes. We will provide the cards.
Translations – For many of our families, Spanish is the main language spoken in the household. Therefore, it is important that our documents and forms are available in both English and Spanish.
Therapeutic Tools – Get creative while also providing a tool we can use with clients and with groups.
Crafts – Help us get a head start on events by cutting out crafts for our Halloween Event or wish list stars for our Holiday Gift Program. Also, leave your mark by helping us to create an outdoor rock garden.
Around our facility – Spread some cheer by decorating the sidewalks outside our agency with artwork and positive messages using sidewalk chalk. Take a photo to share the cheer on social media. As the weather improves, come by and help by cleaning up around the property or pulling weeds in our garden.
