Young Life spreading the word about Mulch Madness

Culpeper Young Life is partnering with JK Enterprise to kick off their annual Mulch Madness Fundraiser. This mulch is premium quality, double-shredded, hardwood dark mulch. Students sell mulch by the 2 and 3 CU FT bag at competitive prices, and deliver it themselves, with the help of willing adult volunteers. It’s a way for them to raise money by providing a quality product and the sweat-equity of free delivery.

Culpeper Young Life is a Christian ministry that values faith, friendship, and fun. Young Life leaders are actively investing time with students in Culpeper County high schools and middle schools to build lasting friendships and to help them live life to the fullest. Young Life is serious about adventure. Young Lifeâ??s summer camps are a testament to that.

â??Ask anybody whoâ??s been to a Young Life camp how it was, and they will tell you they had the best week of their life,â? says Will Orr, Area Director, Culpeper Young Life.

The challenge for kids: the camp experience costs money.

“We never want money to be a reason that one of our friends canâ??t go to camp. We tell them â??If money is the issue then there is no issueâ??. And thatâ??s why we sell mulch. Thatâ??s where the community comes in,” says Orr.

All money raised in the fundraiser goes to help kids go to camp. Last year 55 kids/leaders went to camp and collectively raised over $12,000. This year the goal is to raise $12,500 so more kids can go to camp.

Orders will be received now through March 28 and will be delivered every Saturday in March and on April 2.
