It's been a challenging year for everyone, but as we reflect on 2020 at Cypress Adventures, it's the silver linings that stand out to us. Despite COVID-19, we delivered high-quality leadership and life-skill development programs virtually. We launched a critical new initiative, The Hartsville Peace Tribe. We hosted a successful Drive to Thrive online event. And in the midst of it all, we watched our campus grow with new projects, activities, and possibilities. Our Silver Linings End-of-Year campaign gives our supporters another chance to help before the New Year, and it gives our staff and students another opportunity to express our gratitude.
With 2021 fast approaching, we wanted to thank you for your tireless and generous support over the past year and ask you to join us once more as we prepare for another new year. We look forward to increasing the number of youth we serve, growing our popular program offerings, and expanding our incredible outdoor campus.
A gift to our Silver Linings End-of-Year Campaign will allow us to provide our Youth Leadership Programs to a larger number of deserving students, introduce opportunities for more camping and outdoor adventures and begin new workforce development and civic engagement activities with our new 30x96-foot greenhouse.
It is because of you that Cypress Adventures is the only program of its kind in our state. We look forward to continuing to make you proud while training and caring for our community’s talented, capable, and resilient future leaders.
Thank you for your consideration of an end-of-year gift. Please don’t hesitate to call or email me with questions. We can’t do it without you, and we wouldn’t want to!
