WHY ATTEND YOUTH CLUB?

Snacks are offered each week to the children. The kitchen staff works to coordinate the snack with the theme of the week. We ask that you participate by donating $5 per semester or $10 for the year. This allows for the kitchen staff to purchase items that require early preparation. If you prefer, you may also have the option of bringing in a specific snack item. An envelope is provided for your donation.
