On Friday, June 2, 2017, Associated Ministries will be welcoming groups of youth from different faith communities to our first-ever “Skating for Homes” skate-a-thon. This free and fun event, will be from 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm at Rollin’ 253 Skate and Community Center.
Through our partnership with Rollin’ 253 Skate & Community Center, and Help Us Move In, we are able to help educate youth about the issue of homelessness and help raise funds for youth who, along with their families, are experiencing homelessness. Youth will have the opportunity to seek donations for either each lap they complete within one hour, or a flat donation. All funds raised will be matched dollar for dollar by the generosity of Help Us Move In and will be used to directly assist clients with children who are in need of help with housing.
This is also a wonderful opportunity for youth leaders at our partner faith communities to help their youth understand the issue of homelessness and discuss ways they are drawn to help. For more information or to request a housing specialist to speak to your group, please contact Wendy Morris, Community Engagement Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 253-383-3056 ext. 117.
Registration for “Skating for Homes” closes on Friday, May 26th so make sure to turn your request for tickets and receive pledge cards in to email@example.com before the deadline.
