Youth Against Poverty is excited to announce that we will be holding another one of our signature "pop-up" charity stores! Once again, all of our products will be donated from our generous corporate partners and a volunteer staff will operate the store.
One unique twist on this event is that it will be a joint fundraiser. Our proceeds will go to benefit both our local and global community. Our local partner is Compass Family Services, an organization based in San Francisco that helps provide services such as counseling, childcare and matching permanent housing to economically disadvantaged families (http://compass-sf.org/). Our other partner is Global Family Philanthropy, an Arizona-based nonprofit working to improve the living situation and health of orphans in Haiti (http://globalfamilyphilanthropy.org/). We will be supporting their efforts to build and run a successful clinic in North East Haiti.
We will also be holding an art supplies collection drive through DoSomething.org's Healing Oklahoma initiative. This drive will be providing unused supplies for on-the-ground organizations in Moore, Oklahoma. The children affected by the tornado will receive free access to theraputic and educational artistic programs to help recover from the trauma that they have faced (http://www.dosomething.org/ok).
We are excited for this new project, and encourage you to return to this website as well as visit our Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Youth-Against-Poverty/120734315517?fref=ts) and Twitter (@Youth AgainstPov) often. We will announce the dates and location of the next "pop-up" charity store ASAP.
