This weekend, Pathways had a booth at the Mill Creek Town Festival. We knew this would be a great way to introduce Pathways to others in our community, but we also didn’t just want to have a booth that was all about us. We are passionate about the fact that our community and our world have to be better because Pathways exists, or we aren’t being true to our calling.
We decided to hold a silent auction to raise funds for both a local and a global cause with all of high bids being split evenly between them. Locally, we raised money for HopeLink, and globally, we raised money for WaterAid. We were able to raise $2942 to be split between these two worthy causes. A number of people from Pathways went above and beyond by donating items for the auction, manning the booth, and bidding up the prices! I think we made a great statement both to our church community and to our neighbors about who we are, and I was proud to be a part of it.
