Goods an In-Kind Donations

Last year we spent over $20,0000 on diapers for the children enrolled in our programs. When items like these are donated, it frees up funding so we can serve more families in need!

The Gift of Reading

One of the best gifts we can give kids is a love for reading and then nurture that love. Book ownership increases literacy rates, which positively impact a child’s health, learning skills, life expectancy, and lifetime income. Needless to say, children’s books can change lives.

See below how you can help us give books to kids enrolled in our programs!
