The Courageous Steps Project's summer season is well underway, as the project is preparing for it's 3rd annual back-to-school drive happening on Thursday August 4th, and a benefit dinner at the Old Town Governor's Restaurant on Tuesday August 9th.
Before then, the project will be doing lots of other stuff including raising funds for the scholarship fund & charitable giving fund, working on a storage shed project at the Green House Nursery School, and growing the project structurally.
"At this point, I am taking a step back and looking at ways we can strengthen the organization structurally, so it can continue to perform at a higher standard" said founder Connor Archer recently.
Some of the futuristic goals for the project include forming an official non-profit organization, with a board of directors, and tax-exempt status. This is important when getting grants, more corporate businesses to donate items and sponsor events, and so we can use every penny possible for the project.
"For right now, it is my focus on the two fundraisers this summer, and getting the organization to it's non-profit status" said Archer. "But this is an important step in strengthening the core of the project, and I know it will move our organization forward in the right direction" added Archer.
