As most of you know, SiskiyouYouth.com is supported by Siskiyou County businesses that pay for advertising or sponsorships. On a pretty regular basis, I have people that don’t own a business ask me if they can make a donation or otherwise support SiskiyouYouth. Parents also frequently try to buy photos, which I explain are free to download due to the sponsorships from local businesses. It’s been that way for a few years now.
For those individuals that do want to help support SiskiyouYouth, there is now a way to do so, and at the same time get some great organic coffee. For about the next three weeks, you can purchase whole bean, ground or K-Cup coffee through Jo Coffee and TeamWorks. SiskiyouYouth has a special website set up at myteamworks.org/siskiyouyouth-com.
As always, I encourage you to support the Miner Perk for all your drive-thru coffee needs, or one of our other locally owned purveyors of fine coffee. But, when you brew at home, why not support SiskiyouYouth.com at the same time? As an extra incentive, the first five people to purchase coffee through this program will also get a free SiskiyouYouth beanie that you know you’ll need this fall and winter.
The money raised will go towards at least one SiskiyouYouth Scholarship that will be awarded in spring 2015 to a Siskiyou County student, and to pay for some much needed upgrades to the website in September. Details on the SiskiyouYouth Scholarship(s) will be announced after the conclusion of this fundraiser, but will be by application and will be open to all Siskiyou County high school seniors graduating in spring, 2015. This scholarship is different than the Yreka High School Student Athletes of the Year, which is funded through business sponsorships. (more…)Share on Facebook
