Thank Yous

We love it when kids choose to donate Birthday Party money to YANA so we can help other kids. Thanks this month to Acacia and Alice who celebrated their birthday in this giving kind of way.

Central Builders held another amazing Ladies’ Night in May. It looked like everyone had a great time, building, learning, eating and winning door prizes. Well done Central Builders.

Irelynn and her friends held a car wash and sold lemonade for their donation to YANA Having fun and raising awareness about YANA at such young ages is wonderful.

Many thanks to Chances for choosing YANA as the recipient of their “found” money.

When little Kai’s parents asked him if he’d like to donate some of the money from his piggy bank he said he wanted to give it to YANA and he presented it in a pretty box with a ribbon and a hug.

When Carrie Lemke, a voice teacher, and her students performed a musical theater recital they decided to accept donations for YANA From all accounts it was a successful event.

April 22-26 was the first annual YANA Week in the Schools. What a great way to raise awareness about how YANA helps families in School District 71.
