The youth at Platte Valley Youth Services Center had the opportunity to cater a fundraising event for Free Our Girls, an organization dedicated to preventing, responding, and raising awareness of human trafficking throughout Colorado. The woman in their “Taking Flight” program organized a book sale fundraiser for the organization, as a part of their development and rehabilitation process.
The youth participating spent Friday and Saturday afternoon catering the fundraiser luncheons, which consisted of preparing and serving 30-40 people each day. Each youth involved in the program were able to hear about the work being done by Free Our Girls and see how their contributions played a role in contributing to the amazing work being done by that organization. Additional information about Free Our Girls and their mission and services can be found here.
