Back on Track!
We, like many other organizations and groups, have had to make some significant changes to our regular rhythms and routines because of COVID-19. Recently, our Bancroft satellite would have held their annual barbeque and auction fundraiser – the largest fundraising event for the satellite all year. In the past, the first Friday of June was reserved for this exciting event. Businesses would generously donate items for auction. Over 200 people would show up for the BBQ and their chance to win! It was always a fun evening of community, updates on the ministry, and unwavering support of The Switch Yard.
This year, COVID-19 made these plans change. We pivoted, and hosted a two-week online fundraising campaign. We set a goal of $10,000, and reached that goal within the first week. The second goal of $18,000 was set and exceeded by the end of the campaign.
It is so encouraging to see our community join together to support The Switch Yard / Bancroft Youth Unlimited in such an impactful way. This success allows us to continue to do ministry in our community and continue our mission to reach youth for Christ.
