(Kamiah)-In the ongoing effort to raise funds to open a Teen Center in Kamiah, The Upriver Youth Leadership Council(UYLC) Youth Advisory Board (YAB) will be hosting their monthly “First Friday $5 Lunch” fundraiser on the first Friday of every month. The menu will change monthly. This month the event will be March 1 from 12:00 pm-1:30 pm at the UYLC office, 413 Main Street, and the main menu item will be spaghetti. The $5 lunch orders include spaghetti, French bread, water, and a cookie for only $5.00. In town deliveries are available. Orders can be placed by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, calling 208-743-0392 or stopping by the UYLC office at 413 Main Street. Do not hesitate too long, as these great group of youth sold out in under an hour last month.
YAB recognizes the need to open a teen center so kids can have a safe place to go after school or on weekends. The youth have committed to raising 25% of the funds needed to pay the rent for one year, staff the center, and buy supplies. The UYLC Board has committed to helping raise the remainder of the funds. The doors will open after an initial $10,000 has been raised, and the group is already one third of the way to that goal. Interested supporters, or additional questions can be directed to Sharlene Johnson at (208)-743-0392 or email@example.com.
