The Brothers of YouthBuild Providence, an extra-curricular group of young men who support each other as they transition into adulthood, just completed their holiday fundraiser event.
The group decided to sell Candy Cane Grams to students and staff members in order to raise funds for a family in need this holiday season. They were able to raise a total of $116 dollars in three short days from their peers and staff. The funds will be donated to a family who recently lost their home due to a fire. Believing that every bit helps – the group of young men are eager to make the donation and move on to their next project.
When asked about the fundraiser, one of the members replied “It is easy to get caught up in our own personal issues and situations during this time of year, however this group of young men decided to step above themselves and reach out into the community to give back.”
The group is hopeful to partner with the YBP Girl Rock group in their next community project.
