The Youth Emergency Services Foundation is hosting its 22nd Annual Dinner to benefit the Youth Emergency Services (Y.E.S. House). This fun filled evening will include a silent and live auction, delicious dinner, and Dancing with the Gillette Stars as entertainment for our distinguished guests.
We are all aware of the ongoing employment and financial situations that our community has been facing. The Y.E.S. Foundation is thinking about each of our families and friends who have been impacted. While many circumstances have improved, many of our families continue to struggle.
When stress impacts a family, it also increases the need for the services that we offer.
Within our community, our families are dealing with strain from job losses, home foreclosure or dwindling savings, all of which place pressure on parental relationships and on the family as a whole. Like all non-profit service organizations, our funding stream has been negatively impacted just when our services are needed the most by Campbell County’s children, youth, and families.
We rely on you, the members of our community, to support this most important fundraising event each year. Funds raised will be used to further the services and programs offered by the Y.E.S. House. In 2020, 980 children and families utilized the Y.E.S. House. Children who had no
other safe haven; families in crisis and in need of guidance; and young people who have gained the
skills for a better life are just a few of those that were served. The Y.E.S. House provides the education, prevention and counseling needed for a brighter tomorrow and our caring and professional staff give hope to so many.
We believe that you will make a valuable contribution to this event and greatly enhance our overall mission to serve our children and families in need.
We invite you to sponsor, attend, donate to the auctions, and give to the Y.E.S. Foundation again this year and help us, help those who cannot help themselves.
Thank you for standing with us.
Together We Can make a difference.
