$100,000 and still going strong!
Local youth volunteers, through our Nickels for Nails fundraising campaign, have raised over $100,000 toward the Youth United Osborn Family home currently under construction in the City of Lynwood.
With contributions from over one hundred schools and youth groups, individuals, events, and grants the nickels have been adding up and we have exceeded our initial goal to fund a home. Though we’ve reached our goal we know there is more that we can do so congratulations and keep up the good work!
Special thanks to the Dawn-to-Dusk Golf Marathon which raised over $80,000.
