This morning, the Woodbury Community Team put on a pancake breakfast to raise funds for their upcoming trip to Sunbeam. This fundraiser was a free will offering and allowed you to eat as many pancakes as you wanted! Along with the breakfast, the team set up tables with more information on Sunbeam along with the country of Jamaica. The eating tables also had pictures on them from past trips. This is just one of the fundraisers the team is putting on to gather funds for their trip.
When talking to team leader and chairperson Kristy Beissler, she said this fundraiser was a great opportunity for her team to work together. She continued on by saying that “it is great to raise money but to have several opportunities to come together as a team before we depart is priceless!”
A couple hundred dollars was raised this morning from the breakfast. Kristy said that the money raised today will be going to pay for a pizza meal for the boys during one of their days on the trip.
The next fundraiser will be a garage sale with all proceeds going to Sunbeam. Contact us for more information on how you could help out with donations.

Sunbeam Association for Mission is a 501(c)3, organized exclusively for charitable and religious purposes, specifically for the purpose of establishing and maintaining Sunbeam Boys Home in Jamaica to serve children and young adults in Jamaica; to provide a safe and nurturing environment; and to teach the principles of Christian living. Sunbeam Boys Home provides shelter, care, and an education to 40 boys, ages 7-18. We also maintain a transition program for young men 18+, providing support and encouragement and assistance with living and school expenses.
Mission teams from America are a great asset to our program. Teams stay at Sunbeam, building relationships with the boys, sharing the love of Christ and doing physical labor as needed for upkeep of our facility.
