KOM’s 2nd Annual Summer Fundraiser and KOMoves for Youth both raised a tremendous amount of community support for KOM’s programs. About 500 people came to the Summer Fundraiser where they enjoyed good food, volleyball and a bouncy castle for kids. For KOMoves, 30 people committed to running or biking 30 miles, or playing soccer 30 minutes a day for the whole month of July in order to raise funds for our Youth Program.
We want to give a huge thank you to everyone who participated in KOMoves for Youth and our Summer Fundraiser. That means everyone who came to our event or helped make it happen, including First Karen Baptist Church, our sponsors and partners who had tables at our event, the volleyball teams, those who prepared food, the people who committed to getting out and moving in July, those who donated and everyone else involved. We couldn’t have done it without you!
We raised just over $5,000 from our Summer Fundraiser which will help us respond to unfunded needs such as walk-in services, transportation and translation. From KOMoves, we also raised over $5,000 to go towards our Youth Program here at KOM.
