Supporteen Youth, Inc. is a mentoring program that helps children and their families. It provides support to kids ages 8-18 in the Chattahoochee Valley Area by mentoring them toward success.
Tonight, Thursday, July 20, if you dine at Jason’s Deli in Columbus on Whittlesey Boulevard in the Columbus Park Crossing between 5 and 10 pm, just tell your cashier you wish for a portion of your purchase to go to Supporteen.
“[If diners] let them know they are there for the fundraiser, to support Supporteen Youth, Jason’s Deli will give us 15% of their proceeds,” says Sabrina Leonard, Program Coordinator of Supporteen Youth.
