Community Center Start Up
Organized by: Kristy Wise
June 02, 2016
EVENT DATE Aug 31, 2016
Hello everybody! Near the end of 2015 I was presented with the opportunity to take over a project that we have been working on as both a church and a family for the past few years. We have always had the goal of using our church, Fearnot Assembly of God, as a means of meeting the needs of our community and that is exactly what this project will do.
I have taken over the project to start a Community Center/ Program by the fall of 2016 that will be up and runnning just in time for the new school year. Although this timeline is not set in stone, it would be ideal since a part of the program will focus on after-school activities for kids and teens.
However, in order for that to happen there are a few renovations needed to make the space we have Community-Center-Ready. Unfortunately, renovating rooms and opening cool community centers costs money, and being that I did not buy a ticket for nor win the powerball lottery, I'm not rich enough to do this on my own. Luckily, I have all you wonderful people!
All the money donated here will go towards those renovations, and if there is some left over, to supplies for the center. In addition to this campaign, I will also be applying for grants over the next few weeks to help reach the our fundraising goal. The sooner we raise the start-up money, the sooner we can shift our focus from fundraising to event planning!
With that, any amount that is donated will be greatly appreciated! If you are unable to give at this time please do not feel bad! There will be future fundraising events that you may participate in and you can always add your support simply by keeping this all in your prayers! Lastly, if you would prefer to send a check/cash instead of donating electronically please message me for details!
Thank you all so much for your generosity, support, and for your time. I will keep you updated on the progress as the project unfolds!
