PROJECTS AND PROGRAMS
Photography- GGY Shutter Bugs:
The kids have come together over the past several years over photography. Tackling certain themes for their pictures during the months.
Yard Upgrade Project - 2014 to Present:
In summer 2019, we planted our new raised garden beds for the first time. Our vegetables and berries continue to do very well!
During 2018 and 2019 we had our front yard and drive-way paved as well as new fences built.
The Saal Paving Crew did a great job!
Van Project: Through collecting and recycling bottles and cans, staff and youth members help with the cost of operating our 15-passenger van. We gratefully accept bottle donations and will gladly pick up as required.
Sponsored Child: Joshua lives in Northern Nicaragua. We have been sponsoring Joshua for several years now after our former SP reached 18 and went into post-secondary training. Just over $1.00 a day from our Drop-In's concession goes towards our sponsored child. Youth members exchange letters and drawings with our sponsored child several times a year.
