Our last food pantry for this year had a great outcome! Youth Impact was able to serve those in need for this month’s food pantry within the neighborhood of El Paso in our facility on Fort Boulevard. In all, we had 19 volunteers between youth and adults and were able to receive 89 attendees. Overall, we served a total in households of 268. This year was full of great events that allowed our youth expand their understanding of serving their community.

It has been a blessing to not only those in need but to those that have given of their time.

New Year Goals for Youth Impact

Not all events were captured in images but know that it will remain in the hearts and memories of those who have served and whom we have served. For the new year, we hope to kick it up a notch by seeking more grants from various companies, monetary donations, and in-kind donations. As you know we are a non-profit organization and depend on people like you that provide their time and donations.

This new year we are planning to bring more opportunities for our youth to participate in events that will involve a community center, robotics, monthly community cleanups plus many more events that we have planned. We hope to touch more lives and keep multiplying our efforts to keep developing our youth to be strong leaders and be of impact within their community.
