Mission statement

Our mission is to provide goods and services to underprivileged children, teenagers or very young adults.

Year 2013 was a very productive year for our organization.  With the help of local businesses and private donations, we had the privilege of giving over 320 foster youths and several single parent families a wonderful and memorial holiday season at year's end.  With many fund raisers this year including two yard sales and a motorcycle poker run, we enhanced the lives of a large number of needy children.  A heartfelt "Thank You" goes out to everyone who contributed, whether that be in the form of funds, time or effort.  With the communities help to make it all possible, we look forward to meeting the needs of more underprivileged children in 2014.

If you are not able to help with a direct contribution, you can still help by volunteering your services, donating items for our yard sale, or by attending and supporting our fundraising activities throughout the year.  Check out our more recent or projected fundraising activities by clicking on the FUNDRAISERS button above.

More importantly, if you know or are aware of any needy child, won't you take the time to please click on the REFERRAL button above and tell us about it.  Although most of our referrals come from state or similar sanctioned organizations, we will certainly get back to you and are prepared to service any underprivileged child where the need can be verified.  We will only be limited in servicing the need if it is not within our fiscal capacity.
