Prevention Time Auction 2023

Fall Online Auction 2024

October 5-12, 2024

Our fall online auction will again include restaurant and retail gift cards, Amazon and retail store items, handcrafted and bakery items (including yummy cakes), plants, baskets and many other unique things! This is a great place to pick up something for yourself and your family, as well as gifts for Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, or "just because."

In 2023, our auction raised $13,367 for the Reach4Life AIDS prevention and youth development program, and Khayelisha Care for orphans and vulnerable children. We hope to match or exceed that this year! If you have any new or never used items to donate, please email us. Please also consider donating restaurant or retail gift cards.

Thanks for your help!

Mission Trip 2023

We took a team of 19 people to South Africa from September 1-16. Although there were challenges (as we expected) with load shedding (power cuts), the people we met and places we went more than made up for it! Thirteen local people joined us, including Reach4Life trainers and admin helpers, plus coordinators from six countries: Swaziland (north and south), Mozambique, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, and Malawi. We also had other local Peer Educators join with us! We worked in four area: Johannesburg, Harrismith, Tugela Ferry, and Durban. We worked mostly in schools, conducting assemblies and classroom lessons. We also met with men’s and women’s groups, a hospital, and a shelter, and did home visits where we were able to talk to the local people. The kids’ clubs were a huge success, with hundreds of kids participating! We try to go every other year, so our next trip is tentatively planned for the fall of 2025.
