We’ve been slowly climbing to our fundraising goal for this year’s trip, and we’re excited to announce that we just crossed the half-way mark! Between our own savings, generous donations from several supporters, Mission Store sales and our recent Simply A”door”able fundraiser, we’ve been able to raise $4,824.00 of the approximate $9000 we need to make the trip happen. We’d prefer to purchase our airfare no later than the end of March, but sooner would be even better. Currently, prices are actually a little lower than they were when we bought last year, so we’d like to move on it soon! We are trying to nail down our travel dates and then we’ll secure our tickets as soon as we have the money to cover them. After that, we will still need to raise/save the remaining funds for everything else (ground transportation, lodging, meals, and the cost of the programs we help run and service projects we do while we’re there.
A huge thank you to all who have contributed to getting us this far, and to all who will consider partnering with us. Here are some ways you can do that:
- Soup & Salad Luncheon on Sunday, January 24 after 2nd service.
- We have another Simply A”door”able fund raiser coming up on March 31. It’s fun! Come make something cute for your home or for a gift, and a portion of the profits will go to our mission trip.
- Check our Financial Support page to keep up with the progress and need or to make a donation.
- We’ll also be doing a yard sale this spring.
