Youth United Fundraisers
Here are some examples of past Youth United Fundraisers:
Lego Build - Each fall, Youth United hosts a Lego Blitz Build in the nTelos Wireless Pavilion, in honor of World Habitat Day. Youth volunteers from area high schools help children to "be the builders", constructing a mock mixed-income community with Legos.
Rake-A-Thon - Youth United and Habitat-UVA co-hosted the third annual Rake-A-Thon on November 8-9, 2014. Over 70 youth volunteers worked together to rake yards, raising $1500 towards house sponsorship.
Benefit Dinner- Youth United put on a Benefit Dinner to celebrate the current Partner Families and make others in the Charlottesville community more aware of the work that Youth United does as the youth driven chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Local restaurants were asked to make in-kind food donations, and art made by participating schools was auctioned off.
Youth Serve Saturday CAR WASH - Youth United kicked off their first Saturday of service with a Car Wash at the Habitat Store. Customers were asked to pay what they wish in return for a clean vehicle. All funds raised benefitted the Youth United house sponsorship for the Martin family in Sunrise Park.
Hoops for Habitat - Youth United held a community-wide basketball tournament. All ages participated - elementary, middle and high school students. The tournament was held at St. Anne's Belfield (STAB) School Lower School Convocation Center. Winners of the High School 3 on 3 Tournament: The Magic Squad from The Covenant School including members Jordan Hendrick, Brady Doyle, Caleb Grady and Ray Rushton. Special thank you to our sponsors and in-kind-donors!
