As we prepare to celebrate the one-year anniversary of SHIFT, Spring Hill Inspiration For Teens, we want to take the time to look back on everything that brought us here. We first want to recognize that SHIFT rose out of necessity, out of the heartache of teens in Spring Hill who lost some very dear friends, and out of the knowledge that teens needed a place to hang out and to know that adults in town do recognize them. But it also rose from a passion for seeing the teens in our community thrive with support, activities, and fun that’s just for them and totally free.
Because every event we offer is open to all teens in Spring Hill and is free of charge, we rely on sponsors who can help us afford the events and everything involved in them. This includes things like event space rental, food, promotional materials, and the activities and games themselves. We have been blessed with some amazing sponsors over the last year, and we want to invite you to support them with your business as a thank you for supporting SHIFT during this first year.
Sponsors, we are eternally grateful for the things you have done to help us this first year, and we are so thankful for your belief in SHIFT and what it stands for. Thank you again– you have truly changed the lives of teenagers in Spring Hill!
Teens, thank you so much for attending events and spreading the word to invite your friends. We do this for YOU, and seeing you come and have a great time is what makes all of this worthwhile. We are so happy to see so many of you month after month and we love seeing new faces. Thank you, truly, for being such a big part of SHIFT. Thank you also to the teens who have volunteered their time to help SHIFT with events and to serve in our leadership positions.
Parents, we also want to say thank you to you. First, for encouraging your teens to join us and attend our events, but also for your unending support. To every one of you who has donated money or time volunteering, or who has brought food, supplies, or items to help us with our events (we all know how teenagers love the food!), and to every one of you who has driven your teen or their friends to an event to make sure they can attend, thank you so very much. We could not do it without your donations and your volunteer efforts.
