Celebrate YES's first year with us by participating in the YES Birthday Celebration and Fundraiser!
Over the past year we have assisted over 130 youth experiencing homelessness. We have been able to assist then in becoming housed, employed, healthier, and hopefully on their way to a stable adulthood. We can't thank you enough for your current and past support, as it has made it possible for us to engage with some extraordinary youth.
YES is aiming to raise $2,013 -- the year of our first birthday! We are starting now through a WePay campaign and we will continue throughout the Birthday celebration.
The Birthday Party will include a birthday cake and ice cream, and many surprises!
Please call: 410-235-7744 or e-mail Harriet@yesdropincenter.org for more information.
