Thank you to the Youth Action Committee (YAC) and the Scarsdale Congregational Church for hosting its sixth annual carwash fundraiser for Lakota Children’s Enrichment on April 23, 2017 in Scarsdale NY. The YAC is a group of High School teens from communities in and around Scarsdale who work together on community service projects. Over spring break this year, they took their bi-annual trip to the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota and returned motivated to do more!
Last Sunday, Team YAC –with lots of helpers — baked and washed cars for a few hours of the sunny afternoon. Some of their friends made online donations to support the event and all tolled, they raised $615.00.
LCE Founder Maggie Dunne said, “We are grateful that the Youth Action Committee has once again come together to organize this event for Lakota Children’s Enrichment. I am always awed by the impact that a group of youth can have when they have an idea, passion, and drive to make a difference in the lives of others.”
