Youth Center seeking volunteers, donations

PITSBURG--Lookout Point, Inc.-Youth Center, 220 S. Jefferson St., Pitsburg, is in need of local supporters and volunteers.

Lookout Point, created to provide a Safe Haven for the youth of Darke County, is open every Thursday, 6-8 p.m., except for posted holidays, and a brief winter break from Christmas until after the New Year.

Activities at the center include puzzle night, board game night, craft night, a monthly movie night (the last Thursday of each month), special activities around the holidays, and a large upstairs activity room where the youth can run, chase each other and play hockey, ping pong, foosball, pool, corn hole, string golf. The room also provides a sitting room just for visiting with their friends or reading. Rules of behavior are strictly followed. Refreshments are provided (free snack and juice; pop can be bought for $.50).

A 20-30 minute (KJV) Bible study is held weekly (participation is voluntary), with a discussion time following. We seek to see youth won to Christ and grow in their relationship with Him. To be grounded in God's Word. To gain a desire to go out and tell others about God’s work in their lives. Parents are always welcomed to join their youth for any or all activities. Families are encouraged to come and take advantage of all we have to offer.

Volunteers are needed, such as chaperones to help with activities and to join in the fun with the youth and to help maintain a pleasant atmosphere.

Financial assistance is also needed to help with utilities, which can run as high as $700 or more a month for heating through the fall/winter/spring months and Property & Liability insurance. For the most part this building is a large open space area upstairs and divided rooms downstairs.

The building can be rented for a donation, amount depends on activity and size of party.

If interested in volunteering and/or making a donation, please call Cindy Miller (director), 937-564-9098. Donations can be sent to: Lookout Point, Inc., Box 84, Pitsburg, Oh 45358. Lookout Point is a Non Profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
