Yay!  For the first time in a few years, we are able to again have a breakfast where supporters can meet with other Prevention Time friends!  This is always a fun event so please plan to join us for a yummy breakfast of pancakes, sausage/bacon, eggs, and coffee/orange juice.

Prevention Time Clothing Drive Fundraiser 2023

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]
  • Shoes
  • 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

Prevention Time Auction 2023

Fall Online Auction 2023

October 7-14, 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

In the past, we have taken a mission trip to South Africa every other year with a team of about 15 people from various churches. (Click on the photo above to watch a video of the 2018 mission trip.) We will be taking another team when we feel that conditions allow it. Currently airfare is extremely expensive, the power grid in South Africa is failing, and the cost of gas and other things have seen high inflation. We will continue to monitor the airfares and conditions in the country.

When we do go, we're planning to spend time in the rural KwaZulu Natal province and villages around Durban, teaching Reach4Life lessons in classrooms, helping with school assemblies, and visiting places in the community such as orphanages, drug rehabs, and churches. We'll also do home visits to give the team a chance to speak with the local people. Local Peer Educators join us during these activities, and it's always fun to spend time with the learners (students) and program workers. Please watch our monthly email newsletters to see if/when a mission trip becomes possible. (Sign up for newsletters at the bottom of the home page of our website.)
