“The organisation has passionately served the Lord and the Toowoomba community for over 12 years; reaching some of the most vulnerable young people in our society and offering rehabilitation programs, despite receiving no government funding,” said Lauren Tunney from Teen Challenge.
However, the current economic climate has greatly impacted the organisation and, while they are focusing on implementing initiatives that will help them become more sustainable for the future, they need the support of the wider community.
On May 23 they are inviting the community to get behind them by attending their huge garage sale and family fun day at the New Life Centre.
“People can help make this a great success by donating items and by inviting their friends and family to support this fundraiser,” said Lauren.
“Teen Challenge has a huge heart for the tenacious and generous spirit of the Toowoomba Community, and has taken honour in serving and being a part of this wonderful city.”
