As you are no doubt aware, coronavirus (COVID-19) poses serious risk to the most vulnerable among us, and young people experiencing homelessness — who often live in close quarters and may not be able to take the recommended precautions—are particularly susceptible. New Avenues is stepping up in this crisis to help ensure the safety and well-being of youth in our services. Moments like these require the best in us. This is not business-as-usual. We need this time to pull together and support the vulnerable young people of our community. Help us meet the increased need with a special one-time or monthly donation.
Scoop-a-thon is such a special time of year for New Avenues for Youth, our Ben & Jerry’s PartnerShops, and amazing sponsors like you who make this day possible. This year has been a little different with the unanticipated concerns resulting from COVID-19 aka Coronavirus and its increasing presence in our community.
Unfortunately we won’t host Scoop-A-Thon on March 31st as planned, but we hope to reschedule soon and will share a new date in the coming months. We are actively monitoring reports, and as soon as we can safely do so, we will get Scoop-A-Thon on the calendar. Thank you for understanding.
If you would like to support the youth in our community please donate here!
