A $1,000 donation from the Mission Community Foundation will enhance Youth Unlimited’s Jesters Theatre program. Jesters Theatre provides a safe place for students to love theatre, and this year's theme was to “find your talents and use them well."

Recently, 45 Grades 3-12 students performed a play written by four cast members entitled, “While You Were Sleeping” to appreciative audiences.

Excited students reached their goal of helping families in need by raising over $3,000 for Youth Unlimited in Mission and Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes, which go to developing countries.
