Faith Church Puts Love in Action
Youth In Need recently received a $10,000 donation from Faith Church’s Love In Action event! The live event was held on June 19 (Juneteenth) in collaboration with local churches to give clear action steps to communities on how to dismantle systemic racism in the wake of George Floyd’s murder in Minneapolis. Faith Church donated more than $65,000 to community organizations around their campuses in St. Louis and West Palm Beach, Fla. Youth In Need’s donation has been designated for counseling services for black youth.
YPG Cancels September Trivia Night
Youth In Need’s Young Professionals Group (YPG) has decided to cancel its annual Trivia Night, which had been rescheduled for September following the COVID-19 outbreak. Instead, YPG will focus its fundraising efforts on growing its second annual Step-Up and Sleep-Out event in November. Step-Up and Sleep-Out is both an event that brings awareness to youth homelessness and a fundraising platform to support services for homeless youth at Youth In Need.
