Library still Collecting

Box Tops

Just because YEMS is closed for the summer doesn’t mean that you should stop saving your Box Tops for Education labels. Youngsville Public Library continues to be a “drop off site” for the “Labels for Education” labels (aka Box Top labels) that are located next to the barcode of various name-brand items. The monies raised by Box Top label collections are used to directly benefit the students at YEMS and help to supplement the costs of special programs, activities, and other miscellaneous needs. The students take an active role in counting the Box Tops and preparing them to be sent out quarterly.

All you have to do is cut the labels out (including the bar code information) and drop them off at the Youngsville Library. If you are unable to get to the library during business hours, just place the cut labels in a sealed, plastic Ziploc baggie and place the baggie in Youngsville Library’s drop-box. Labels will then be transferred from the Youngsville Library to YEMS in September.

“We are glad to support YEMS by being one of their Box Tops for education drop-off sites,” said Library Director Kristy Wallace. “It is our hope that by offering another collection site that more community members will participate in this program thereby helping YEMS to reach its annual goal of collecting $3,000 worth of “Labels for Education.” What makes our collection site unique is that we are open year-round and have a drop-box that is open 24-7 so that residents can continue to collect labels during the summer months and they don’t have to worry about hanging on to them until the school year starts again in September.”

For an additional information and a list of “Labels for Education” products checkout labelsforeducation.com. Library business hours are Monday and Tuesday; Noon-7:30 pm, Wednesday; 10-5 pm, and Friday; Noon-4 pm.

Camp Halo

Needs Donations

It’s almost Camp time. Many things have been donated.the crates and totes are being filled at this time! Just a few special items are still needed, especially craft items. During their stay at camp, these children not only enjoy activities such as swimming, hiking, sports, crafts, and horseback riding, but they also learn valuable life skills. Among other things, campers are taught about basic cooking, cleaning skills and proper hygiene – much needed skills for the kids to take care of themselves in their home life.

At present, the summer camp is funded by private donations. With the current economic instability in our region and increasing costs, our donors have not been able to keep up with our growth. Therefore we are seeking funding through new means. The funds will go towards purchasing food, clothing, shoes, hygiene products and toiletries, first aid and lice kits, kitchen supplies, paper products and cleaning supplies, bedding, and school supplies.

With your help, Camp Halo can continue to be serving underprivileged children in the community. Your Donation Helps Feed, Clothe, and Teach Needy Children. Doorkeepers Christian Outreach is a 501(c) 3 non-profit and donations are tax-deductible. Please consider helping us keep the doors open for this summer camp that helps underprivileged kids in so many ways.

Camp Halo

Needs Donations

Camp Halo began in 1999 with 20 children “camping out” in a backyard for a weekend. Since then, we have grown to five weeks of camp, averaging 75 children per week, so that 300+ children are able to attend. Camp Halo provides a week of camp, free of charge, to underprivileged children ages 6 to 15 from the southern Erie and Warren counties area.

The camp is a safe haven for many of these children, over 75 percent of who have experience some form of abuse in their home environment. Camp Halo provides campers with three nutritious meals a day (plus snacks), school supplies, school clothes, hygiene products, Bibles, and quilts.

During their stay at camp, these children not only enjoy activities such as swimming, hiking, sports, crafts, and horseback riding, but they also learn valuable life skills. Among other things, campers are taught about basic cooking, cleaning skills and proper hygiene – much needed skills for the kids to take care of themselves in their home life.

At present, the summer camp is funded by private donations. With the current economic instability in our region and increasing costs, our donors have not been able to keep up with our growth. Therefore we are seeking funding through new means. The funds will go towards purchasing food, clothing, shoes, hygiene products and toiletries, first aid and lice kits, kitchen supplies, paper products and cleaning supplies, bedding, and school supplies.

With your help, Camp Halo can continue to be serving underprivileged children in the community. Doorkeepers Christian Outreach is a 501(c) 3 non-profit and donations are tax-deductible. If you or your organization is interested by suppling items or financially help, contact Diana Payne at 563-4849.
