The Presbyterian Church of Chatham Township (PCCT) hosted their annual Youth Mission Trip Fundraising Dinner on Sunday, April 7th, raising over $10,000. Attendees enjoyed a fun evening with a silent auction and a delicious surf and turf meal. The event subsidizes approximately 30% of the cost to send 36 high school youth and adults to Florida in June to do disaster recovery work, where they will help repair homes damaged by Hurricane Irma in 2017. The Youth Mission Team will be serving communities located in Pinellas, Hillsborough, and Pasco Counties in partnership with the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church. PCCT Associate Pastor Tom Brown says, “Each year, the mission trip fundraiser reminds us of what it means to be a supportive, inter-generational community of faith, and showcases a delightful group of teens who will be giving up the first week of summer to serve people in need.”
