Our Saviour’s United Methodist Church (OSUMC) in Schaumburg raised over $6,700 this summer through their Annual Ice Cream Social for KYC! The church gathers silent auction items for months, filling rooms with goodies and hand-made items, to bolster their fundraising success, while church members gather for an afternoon of hot dogs, pulled pork, salads, and of course, ice cream and fellowship.
This year, five KYC employees joined the celebration as volunteers for the big day. “It’s absolutely incredible” shared Kate Garbarek, KYC’s Director of Development and Communications. “The auction offers so many amazing prizes and we were so proud to be a small part of the day’s great celebration.”
OSUMC was one of KYC’s first supporters, dating back more than 30 years to when Kenneth Young (of whom we got our name!) was pastor of the church. Countless volunteers, donors, and friends from OSUMC continue to serve KYC and we’re deeply grateful for our deep ties. Dorris Young, Ken’s widow, still volunteers at every Ice Cream Social and KYC’s 5K. “Dorris is a dynamo” continued Garbarek. “She never misses an opportunity to support KYC and has engaged so many people in so many ways. We’re forever grateful for her.”
KYC is proud to thank and recognize OSUMC for their longstanding support and consistent generosity. We couldn’t do our work without OSUMC!
