Joining Forces

There is no such thing as "other people's children", and it is our responsibility as a community to work together for the common good of the youngest members of our society. Please join us in our efforts to help local children. If you would like to join the team please contact us today to be added to our email list.

Community Partners

Ensuring every student has what they need to learn is truly a community effort. We work with businesses, organizations, student groups, churches, and individuals on a variety of partnerships that are mutually beneficial. We can design an event, drive, or program that works for your organization and helps you meet your goals for community engagement and brand awareness while helping the local children who need it most. We can assist with the planning, development of program marketing materials, advertising, and much more!
