Thank you so much for taking the time to check out our 2017 Clear The Board Youth Fundraiser.
Before reading below about how it works, be sure to check out the video below where some of our youth help explain what this fundraiser is all about
Now that you’ve seen the video, here are some highlights for you to know about the fundraiser
What Is It?
In the foyer of the church, you will find a large board with all kinds of numbers on it. Essentially, our goal is to have you help us “clear” the board.
How Does It Work?
So the way that it works is that you will take a number down from the board and put the corresponding amount of money into that card (so if you take #5, you’d put $5 … #26, you’d put $26, and so forth).
Before putting your money in there and returning the card, be sure to take out what is in the card. Every single card has been decorated by one of our youth (over 20 of them participated in making these cards). Also, there are 60 different prizes scattered throughout the cards. Maybe a free chicken sandwich at Chick Fil A. Maybe a gift card to the movies. Or maybe even the top prize of a $100 gift card to the Dillard House.
What Do I Do With The Card?
After taking the card down and removing the things in the card, just put your money inside the card and do one of three things.
(1) Drop it in the box on the welcome table.
(2) Give it to Pastor Zack.
(3) Bring it by the church office and leave it with Sharon.
You can put cash or check. If writing a check, please make it out to GBC and in the memo line put “Youth Trips.”
What Is the Money Going To Support?
The money is primarily going to support the trips that we take with the youth throughout the year. The biggest of these is our annual summer camp that we take the youth to. In order to make the camp affordable, we offset over half of the actual cost in order to enable more of the youth to come.
How Can I Spread The Word About This?
The more supporters, the merrier. If you have friends, family, classmates, teachers, etc that would like to partner with us and support us in this fundraiser, please share about it. They can contact Pastor Zack directly with the contact information below, or they can come by the church office during office hours and pick out a card that they’d like to take.
