YAP facilitates DoSomething.org event

Youth Against Poverty is gearing up for a whole month of helping pets get adopted! Our organization will be taking part in DoSomething.org's Pics for Pets Campaign. This project will be utilizing social media in an effort to help share animals in our local shelters. This added exposure will help to spread the word about these animals looking for a new home. These photos of animals are often accompanied by a short description of the pet's personality and the shelter where they are currently being housed. For every 400 shares, DoSomething.org will donate much-needed supplies to the participating shelters. We are looking forward to participating and encourage all of our supporters to check out this great campaign: http://pics.dosomething.org/

 

Be sure to keep up with YAP's efforts via social media:

Shoe Biz SF signs on for August event!

Youth Against Poverty's corporate partner Shoe Biz SF is supporting our pop-up store this August. We are very excited to hear from this local business that "Shoebiz will be 100% behind this event". This dedicated company has donated products to some of our previous events, such as the pop-up shoe store we held last summer in Los Altos. Even with their busy schedules and opening of a new store in Blackhawk Plaza, Danville, Shoe Biz has still remained involved and supportive of Youth Against Poverty's projects. We greatly appreciate the generosity of Shoe Biz SF and their tireless dedication to alleviating poverty. We encourage you to learn more about the business here: http://www.shoebizsf.com/

YAP Board Meeting Today

Youth Against Poverty's Executive Board met today to discuss the upcoming pop-up store this August. Our agenda included developing a new logo, seeking more corporate partnerships and improving the upcoming store. Our goal with every new project is to build off of benefits in the past. For example, we thought that having more incentives and appeal to windowshoppers would be a great way to improve sales. We also discussed possible attention-grabbers to help attract more customers. Everyone is energized from this last board meeting and hope that all of our supporters are also excited for the latest pop-up store this August!
