Welcome to 2012!
Wow! It's 2012 everyone! You know what that means? This year marks the fifth – that's right, the FIFTH – anniversary for On The River! Can you believe it's been five years already? Unbelievable. And it wouldn't have been possible if not for you, for our many event volunteers, and for YPAP.
What's YPAP you say? YPAP stands for "Young Professionals Against Poverty," which is a group of young professionals which works with On the River and the Center for the Homeless in South Bend. YPAP's mission is to "…support the mission of the Center for the Homeless as stewards, fundraisers and advocates," in order to meet their vision of actively engaging local professionals with the Center, while asking them to "…develop new and exciting ways to raise both funds for the Center and awareness about poverty in our community."
On the River is one of the ways that YPAP achieves those goals. Through On The River, over $60,000 has been raised for the Center since 2008. If you want to get involved with YPAP and On the River, then look no further! Just visit their website here. In the meantime, add On the River 2012 to your calendar! It'll be held August 3-4 this year. See you there!
