Communities That Care of Greater Downingtown is seeking sponsors for “7 Days to Make a Difference: A Virtual Auction to Empower Youth to Make Positive Choices,” which will be held from Oct. 3-9.

CTC of Greater Downingtown is a collective of local government, schools, hospitals, faith communities, healthcare and human services providers, and law enforcement that uses evidence-based prevention programs, policies, and resources to foster positive youth development and mental health and prevent substance abuse.

The nonprofit is built on the Collective Impact model, understanding that one group or person alone cannot change a complex social issue.

Sponsors can choose from a variety of levels:

  • $250: Display your logo with a link to your business on the auction website for two weeks before and during the seven days of the auction.
  • $500: Display your logo, link, and an ad on the auction website, as well as on the CTC website and social media platforms for two weeks, before, during, and after the auction.
  • $1,000: Logo, link, ad, and optional video of you sharing why you support youth and families in the community. CTC will continue to promote your business on its website and social media platforms through December 2020.
  • $3,000: The presenting sponsor will receive all of the promotion above, as well as listing (“Presented by … ”) on the auction’s home page and all advertisements in print and on social media.
High school students in the Downingtown Area School District participate in training to become “Role Models for Change.”

Resilient youth are able to negotiate life challenges, withstand social and environmental pressures, and advocate for themselves and others. CTC of Greater Downingtown needs your help to foster that resilience and to empower youth to reach their full potential.

“Youth and their families have always faced many challenges, and 2020 has been especially difficult,” said Carl Gregory, President of CTC of Greater Downingtown. “Now more than ever is the time for community to come together to provide needed resources.”
