The purpose of this non-profit organization is to put together events throughout the year that will open up opportunities for everybody to volunteer to help those in need. These events could vary from feeding the homeless, collecting items for those in need, season holiday events and many more. This organization also encourages kids to step up to the plate and become involved so that we could build a better community for the future. Read More
January is Poverty Awareness Month and is easy to be aware of those who need an extra hand as we see them all the time on the street corners of our neighborhood holding up signs asking for help. Many times, they are in the cold overnight shivering hardly being able to speak the words “God bless.”
Winter 2019 will be entering the 12th year of this blanket drive for the homeless. Blankets and other warm items will be collected during the winter and donated to homeless men, women and children. This is the best time to clean out those closets of old items and give them to those who could really use them. Even One Blanket Could Make a Difference!
Around this same time last year we held this great event and had many volunteers create their favorite sandwiches for the homeless. What we didn't expect was the amount of sandwiches that were made that day: 1,000 SANDWICHES which we later delivered as a group downtown that same day.
Bring to light the awareness of bullying and the desire to educate our youth and parents about the reality of this sad epidemic that has only gotten worse with social media. The symposium will be for kids in kindergarten through 5th grade and will take place in the next three months.
It is that time of the year again to help feed low-income families during Thanksgiving and I need your help to feed 50 families. Fletcher Community Elementary School in Aurora has 93.5% of their children on free/reduced lunches. The school's family advocate reached out to me again this year to help these families. Only $25 feeds a family -
Help bring joy to a low-income family this holiday season by adopting them during Christmas and giving them new clothing and shoes. Items that many of these families are limited to buying especially shoes for their children. We are hoping to bring joy to 50 families this year!
It is that time of the year again when students go back to school to learn and obtain the knowledge to one day become leaders in our community. Sadly a lot of families struggle badly financially to get their kids ready for the new school year. Fom new clothes/uniforms to school fees to school supplies; the struggle is real. I invite you to help these low income families by donating school supplies. Giving students the tools they need to be successful in the classroom!
