BUY A MILE CONTINUES

As we continue our BUY A MILE program to help us raise the airfare for the ELCA Youth Gathering we have only been able to get to New Jersey! We need your help in getting the rest of the way to Houston and back. There are 11 youth and either 2 or 3 adults from St. Andrew’s that are attending next June 26 thru July 2. This will be our third time sending youth to these gatherings and each time we have reached out to our congregation and you have answered. We are looking to raise the total cost of our airfare of $5,250 to get us there and back. Each mile is costing us $3 and we are hoping that each one of you would buy a couple of miles to help us complete our goal. This is not just limited to our congregation as anyone can donate. Ask your families and friends to help us get to Houston! If you have any questions please see Judy, Ellen or Margy.

As always we are blessed to have you to help us with this amazing journey!
