I still have a very long way to go with fundraising! I am not even at $1,000 yet and my goal is $3,000. It costs the YAV office about $22,000 for my year of service so they are asking very little from me. Please make a donation by going to this site and writing my name in the instructions area so it gets directed to me!
I am thrilled to announce that I am now finished with my fundraising! My home church- Hidenwood Presbyterian in Newport News, VA- as always, has gone above and beyond in supporting me in my faith journey and my financial obligations to the YAV program. Thanks to a very large donation from the elders, deacons, and endowment fund from Hidenwood I was within $200 of my fundraising goal which was met very quickly with a donation from individual church members and the PEVA (Presbytery of Eastern Virginia) scholarship funds. Although I have fulfilled my required $3,000 of fundraising, the YAV office is still spending much more to support me for a year. Please feel free to continue to make contributions, either directed towards me, the Boston YAV site, or the YAV program as a whole.
I cannot thank everyone enough for all of the support I have received. I truly could not have this experience without your help!
