Jimmy Mac's Breakfast 2023
Saturday, March 4, 2023
Jimmy Mac's Roadhouse
34902 Pacific Hwy South
Federal Way, WA
Yay! For the first time in a few years, we were able to again have a breakfast where supporters could meet with other Prevention Time friends! This is always a fun event with a yummy breakfast of pancakes, sausage/bacon, eggs, and coffee/orange juice. Half of the price of the $10 breakfast was donated back to Prevention Time for the Reach4Life program. We took in over $2,227 to support the Peer Educator Conference in July. Thanks for your help!.
Summer "Fundrive" Clothing Drive 2023

Our annual "Fundrive" clothing collection event will again run from April 1 through October 31, to raise funds for the Reach4Life program. (Last year we raised $6,638 from the clothing drive.) We can take these items:
- Clothes [gently used; not torn or stained]
- Purses, belts and backpacks
- Bedding [no pillows], drapes, towels, etc.
- No area rugs
- No stuffed animals
During the drive, contributions can be dropped off on the covered porch at the above address. Call 253-946-5953 (landline) or 206-423-0306 (cell) with any questions or to arrange a time to drop off larger amounts. You can also email us. Donation receipts will be in a bag on the porch
Fall Online Auction 2023
October 14-21, 2023
Our fall online auction will include Amazon and retail store items, restaurant and retail gift cards, handcrafted and bakery items, 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 2022, our auction raised $14,674 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.
