INFUSE youth collect donations for Haywood Street Congregation
INFUSE RetreatsEach year, Ministries with Young People (MYP) at Lake Junaluska collects an offering to help with missions. In 2010, youth who attended INFUSE responded to the need in Haiti by collecting and donating $5,000 for UMCOR (United Committee on Relief).

In 2011, MYP at Lake Junaluska will be collecting donations for a local mission, Haywood Street Congregation. Located in Asheville, NC, Haywood Street is a unique congregation that was created to be a ministry to the homeless.

During the first weekend of INFUSE at Lake Junaluska December 31 - January 2, youth raised $880 for Haywood Street and collected many items for the ministry's clothing closet.
