An Announcement
We would like to thank everyone who participated in both our Go Beyond Barrington Spring Break trip and in Go Beyond Barrington in general this year. Through our efforts, we were able to raise a grand total of $21675 for the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans! This money will go to a good cause - this charity provides housing, supportive services, and community outreach to help homeless and at-risk veterans and their families achieve self-sufficiency. Without those who dedicated their time and effort, we could have never done so much good in a short amount of time. Again, a huge thank you from us here at GBB to everyone who helped over the course of the year.
