HELP EAST-JOHN YOUTH CENTER RENOVATE OUR POOL!
After 36 years, it is time that we bid our old pool a fond farewell. It has brought our community lots of joy and memories that will last a lifetime. As we embark on a new year, we also want to embark upon a new mission: To renovate our pool to be more inclusive so that it is enjoyable for all! The renovations will provide a safe and updated swim area for the youth and will also include the addition of a Handicap-Lift and other ADA modifications. Everyone in our community will now have access to use our facility.
The East-John Youth Center, Inc., is a 501c (3) non-profit organization, we all know and love! The center provides a six-week annual summer day camp and with other activities-that are both recreational and educational. We are currently working to renovate the pool and pool house located at 11835 Mill Bridge Road in Lusby, Maryland 20657. Neighbors and friends, we absolutely need your support!
Our goal is to raise $40,000 to finish the project which was slated to be completed in June 2020. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, our fundraising efforts were halted. However, if COVID-19 has reminded us of anything, it is that we are strong, resilient and a dedicated community. With faith and support, we want to continue our renovations so that when state and local health regulations are lifted, we will be ready to provide a safe, inclusive summer program for our youth in Summer 2021! With your contributions to our “Go-Fund-Me” campaign, you can make it happen.
Thank you in advance for your help!
