WE GOT $80 TO TAKE THE GIRLS OUT
One of our supporters gave us a gift of $320 after hearing about the youth girls camp to take the 4 girls out to ‘buy them something to make them feel special.’ Anni arranged for 4 different Streetlight leaders to take all 4 girls out one-on-one for a coffee as well as a shopping spree! It was not only incredible spending a good couple hours with each girl one-on-one, hearing their stories and encouraging them, but it was so rewarding seeing their faces in complete awe, visually displaying their question of ‘why me?!’ when they received this unforgettable gift.
A church small group made and packed backpacks which lately have come in very handy for troubled youth. Heres what one young person has said after receiving one: ‘ I honestly couldn’t appreciate that bag more, so thankful for you guys and that bag was a lifesaver for me. Thank you so much.’ We have enjoyed seeing proud youth, week after week rock up with their backpacks. The amount of young people we are finding couch surfing is growing due to the instability around their families and their homes. If you’re a part of a small group and would like to get behind Streetlight, we would love to hear from you!
