Community support needed for Spring Break activities

Crowdfunding site set up to help youth have a positive Spring Break experience

Dear Editor,

Agassiz-Harrison Community Service(AHCS) is looking for the community’s support during spring break.  We  are fundraising to send local youth on a snow adventure. Our goal is $1200  so we can send 10 youth and 2 chaperones skiing. We are asking for the community’s help in raising these funds in 10 days… that’s $120 per day!

AHCS thought we would try a new fundraising strategy and have set up a “crowd funding” page through Black Press’ – BlackPress4Good.com website which is dedicated to helping not-for-profit organization raise funds.  If readers could go to https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/0wq89 and donate it would help us to reach our goal.  Every dollar counts in assisting Agassiz-Harrison Community Services’ youth programs.

Thank you for your help!

Laura Midan, Executive Director
