TeamBuilders Counseling Services, a non-profit agency that provides behavioral health services to children and their families, will hold a series of fundraising events in April and May to help raise funds for summer programs planned for the children in their care, according to a press release.
Although these activities will be great fun for the kids, they have a larger purpose, the release said. They are structured to help the kids build social and teamwork skills, to expose them to physical activities and challenges they've never experienced, and to give them an opportunity for fun and excercise that otherwise wouldn't be available to them.
For more information about the following events, call Lesa Salvador at 403-8003.
The three events are:
• Garage Sale
7 a.m. to 1 p.m., April 18-19 at TeamBuilders Offices, 1110 East High St. A wide selection of toys, clothes, furniture, and other treasures, along with fresh-baked goods.
