We invite you to join us for our various events, all with the purpose of reaching out to those in need and break the cycle of poverty. Whether you volunteer or attend one of our events, we appreciate your involvement in changing the lives of others.

Spring Fun Day
Our Spring Fun Days provide an opportunity to give directly to less fortunate children in the community.

We ask for donations of Easter baskets, with a goal every year of 1,000 filled baskets. Check out the flyer for details on contents for the baskets. We also look for volunteers to host craft tables for the children on basket distribution day.
