From The President

November Posted By: Jennifer Fortson 

October is swiftly drawing to a close--it seems like our teens just left, and already we’re gearing up for 2016! Fundraisers are being scheduled, recruiting events are taking place, and Ken Simon is wondering what he’s gotten himself into by volunteering to coordinate activities. ;-) We’re extremely fortunate to have such a hard-working Board and core group of volunteers; under their leadership UPATX has earned a reputation as an efficient, organized, and active Project.

Every year we rely on past Host Teens/Families and other Project supporters to help us create a strong foundation for the structure of the summer to come. Please consider what gifts—whether of time, talents, or financial support—you might be able to offer. As always, we especially cherish your prayers and encouragement! It’s a big undertaking, but we know it will be worth it in the lives of our teens.

If you’re interested in getting more involved (or know someone who might be), please contact any Board member or drop me an email! We’d love to have you along with us as we start building toward a landmark 2015.

Sincerely, Jennifer Fortson UPATX President
