#GivingTuesday- $10,000 is the goal!

November 27, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Help us reach our goal as we kick off the charitable season through our #GivingTuesday campaign!

“To reach our goal of raising $10,000 would make it possible for us to maintain the level of activity we have achieved while protecting our buildings, equipment and displays.  In the recent few years, keeping up with rising attendance numbers and activity has meant less attention to the maintenance of our displays and historical structures.  While we have enjoyed the increase in guests to the farm, we prefer to welcome them to the same level of hospitality and well-maintained buildings as our guests have grown to expect from Wessels.  Our fundraising efforts must increase in order to do so.  In addition to monetary donations we are recruiting volunteers, promoting the purchase of memberships to the farm, gift certificates to the Wessels Mercantile and accepting new volunteer pledges. We would also like to support our local businesses who we rely on for so many things related to the daily operation of the farm by asking that gift cards be purchased from these businesses for our use throughout the season.  Office supplies, animal feed, tools, hardware, paint, snack and activity supplies for classes, concession stand supplies and cleaning supplies are examples of the consumable items we purchase from our local businesses.  Now through November 27th financial support may be donated through our website, by texting SEEDS to 44321, by mailing your donation to the farm or by visiting us on November 27th in down town York, in the lobby of the YCVB/YCDC offices. There, we’ll have a live meter showing our progress and will celebrate the day with everyone who stops by!”  Hillary Mundt, Director
