Support from our community makes a huge difference in our ability to help kids. You can be a part of the effort by involving your friends, church community, or clubs. These grass roots efforts help us with funds and supplies, as well as creating ambassadors: people who know who we are, what we do, and tell others.
Bring together any group of people you know cares about kids for lunch, morning coffee, or an activity. Ask them to bring things we always need, like hygiene products, warm socks, or gift cards, and make donations. We would be happy to come talk about our programs to your group, if possible.
You can start a fundraiser in Facebook. Create a post telling your friends about CYFC, and why you support us. Choose the “Support Nonprofit” option and search for J Bar J Youth Services, because all J Bar J programs operate under the same 501(c)3. Tag us (@cascadeyouthandfamilycenter), so we know about the fundraiser.
If you shop on Amazon, use Amazon Smile and they will donate .5% of all your purchases. Because we are only allowed one account per 501(c)3, we are under J Bar J Youth Services. Choose us at https://smile.amazon.com/ch/93-0677650
