The Grace Unied Church of Christ Youth Fellowship held a fundraiser in conjunction with The Bon Ton by participating in Community Day. They sold coupon books to be used on a designated day. The youth decided to donate half of the money to a charity.

Over $825 was raised by the fellowship, and the store reimbursement from its own book sales added another $400. On Dec. 12 the GUCC Youth Fellowship presented $600 to Peggy DeWire, coordinator of Greencastle Food Pantry at Greencastle Presybterian Church. Some of the youth will also do community service by volunteering at the pantry.
