As the nights lengthen and fall turns to winter, we invite you to warm your hands around our virtual campfire. Storytelling powerfully represents the warmth of a campfire and the shining of light amidst darkness. Of course s'mores are a close second in reminding us of campfires, but they are much harder to send out over email! So, each Tuesday in December we'll be bringing you stories from YES's work and adventures in 2017.
As we share these stories with you, please consider helping make our work possible by making a donation during our year-end "S'more Campaign".
Your contribution will provide leadership development opportunities and access to nature for low-income Richmond youth and families in the year to come.
Our goal is to raise $55,000 by January 1st, and
every donation made between now and the end of the year will be
thanks to a matching grant from an anonymous foundation!
Please read on for our first story of the season.
