CHESTERVILLE– About 85 people packed The Gathering House in Chesterville last week for Taco Tuesday, a fundraiser for YouFeedThem, which is using the funds to benefit Yogo Village, Kenya. “According to comments made by many guests, the food was delicious,” said Theresa Poirier of YouFeedThem. “The evening was quite enjoyable. We were especially grateful for several guests who sponsored children from our sponsorship tree.”

The tree holds picture cards of each child that is available for sponsorship through Ambassador Ministries in Covenant in Russell. The sum of $41 per month pays their school fees, school uniform, and two meals a day.

The charities are looking forward to their September fundraiser, Pioneer Family Fun Day, which will be hosted by YouFeedThem team members Sylvain and Jill Guindon, in Russell. Guests are encouraged to wear pioneer-style clothing for the photo booth. In addition to a great meal, there will be live music, games, races, contests, wagon and pony rides, face painting and more. Tickets are $25, $10 for ages 4-12, ages 3 and under are free.  Tickets can be purchased at youfeedthem.com.
