At Springwood Hospitality we firmly believe that we are to make a difference in the communities we serve. That’s why we’ve teamed with Young Life York County as the Event Sponsor for their annual banquet this year.
Young Life is an international not-for-profit that reaches out to adolescents of all stripes to show them love and encouragement in 1 on 1 relationships, in “Club” meetings where they can be crazy and just be kids, and at summer camps, where most kids say they had “the best week of my life”.
All of this effort is geared to showing adolescents the love of Christ. Volunteers and staff do this to earn the right to be heard, to share the story and power of Jesus Christ. Regardless of response, kids are loved and supported by Young Life leaders and staff. Many of these special relationships last a lifetime.
Young Life is a special organization that is making a difference in the lives of thousands of teens. We are honored to play a part.
Many of you are aware of the severe storms and tornadoes that caused massive destruction to the southeasternUnited States. My hometown inSweet HomeAlabama, and neighboring counties were affected leaving many families displaced. Because so many of those affected are without insurance or monetary resources, a local church (EPIC Church an official EMA drop-off center) in my hometown has found a great deal on 30 foot camper style trailers to provide housing. One of these trailers costs $2,000. Their goal is to secure funding for 20+ trailers. I would like to open up this opportunity to any of you that want to do something but may not know how to help. This is one opportunity.
If you would like to join me, please make a check out to Epic Church, PO Box 2746 Decatur, AL 35602 and in the memo write Tornado Relief: Trailer Fund. You can drop it by my office or give it to Teresa. I am asking you to please send all donations to me by Thursday because time is critical. If you cannot get a check to me by Thursday and would still like to donate, you can mail it directly to Epic Church. It is 100% tax deductible, but in order to get a tax credit to you, please provide your name and address along with your check.
Thanks so much for considering!
