Re-Purpose 4 A-Purpose Fund Raiser Planned

Posted on 14 October 2013 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—The “Teaming Together 4 Teens” Coalition has a new fund raising effort planned for mid-November.  Tina Hopkins and Sue Doran call it a “Re-Purpose 4 A-Purpose” fundraiser, that will be held in the lower Livery, November 15th and 16th.  Currently, the Coalition is seeking individuals that would like to donate furniture, home decor, yard art or any interesting item to support the fundraiser.  Hopkins and Doran were on “Tuned In” on KWBG Monday and said they have done a variety of fundraisers in the past, but this will be a first time effort with “Re-Purposing”.  They say some items will be available for sale, as well as items others may want for projects of their own.  Items may be donated by contacting Doran or Hopkins at Youth and Shelter Services of Boone County at 515-432-2091.

The “Teaming Together 4 Teems” Coalition handles the YSS Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Program.  Hopkins says they recently received a grant to expand service into Polk County.  This year presentations and programming have been provided to more than a dozen schools in Boone, Story and now Polk Counties as well as for Iowa State University and Des Moines Area Community College.  The “Tuned In” program can be heard here.
