…empowering youth to create their own resources,
…reaching beyond their circumstances to be leaders of society
EY Golden Ticket Event:
December 15, 1-3 or 3:30-5:30pm
Want something special for your child this Christmas that’s more about relationships and fun and less about the gifts? You are invited to participate in the EY Golden Ticket event.
We have been planing for a few months to include all of our students we serve through Empower Youth weekend food program and now we realize we have at least 100 openings for more children. We would love to have your family come.
All you do to qualify is fill out the form below so we can be ready. Santa and Mrs. Clause will be there giving out gifts (at least $10 value). We even have gift cards for studens all the way to age 19. We will have hot cocoa and cookies. We will have a wonderland carnival of games and crafts. Mrs. Clause will be telling stories. And every family that attends will come home with a giant box of food for the Holidays.
The event will be held at Woodland Lakes Christian Camp in Amelia. We will have gas cards to help with transportation to the event.
The DEADLINE for these forms is December 10. Please get them in by that date so we can make sure Santa has enough special gifts for all his friends.
For more information: email Lori at firstname.lastname@example.org

On July 3rd, Lori Conley, our Executive Director, received the news of her diagnosis of a rare form of gallbladder cancer. We are excited to post that Lori just finished with a pet scan that showed no visible form of cancer. She is still fighting this horrible disease as it is known for microscopic cancer cells. As of this posting, Lori still has 32 more chemotherapy and radiation treatments until her next scan.
We are confident for her recovery and she definitely is hard to hold back from the ranch. Please continue to pray for her and Scott as they duke this out! We also want to thank everyone who has made donations to Empower Youth and designated it for Lori and Scott’s health account. Lori receives a small monthly stipend from us and the extra funds designated for her health have allowed them to stay on top of all their medical bills to date. They could not do this without your help!
The picture below is Lori and Scott at the beginning of this year– Lori in her rare form! She tackles everything with humor! Please keep praying for her recovery and be ready for what she unleashes in the coming months to fight food insecurity and give all students in Appalachia a strong hand up from struggles into success!
