The Must! Charities Youth Board challenged themselves this year to leverage their ideas, their energy and their enthusiasm for community and raise money for a project researched by them, chosen by them and like all things teenager - inspired by THEM!
Hands down with zero hesitation, the Youth Board chose to support summer field trips at three North County locations of People's Self-Help Housing with their Camino Scholars program. Field trips to museums, the beach, the parks...but our kids did not stop there.
Originally, they were challenged to raise $2,500 and with a generous match from donors, Don + Elaine Witmer, they would have had a nice donation to present.
But like we said, the Youth Board didn't stop there. They also wanted to provide Ravine Water Park passes for every single kid at these locations. YESSSSSS!
Their efforts totaled $9,000 and it was all JOY as the teens delivered summer fun and good news to the kids at People's Self-Help Housing. Add that $9,000 with the $2,500 match and we not only funded field trips and water park passes; but also, were able to make a donation to the SLO Food Bank!
