We send breakfast and lunch home for the weekend with kids in need from their school counselors. We pack it in a back pack so it is discreet and can take home food each Friday. In 2018, we have delivered over 3200 meals.
With over 2600+ dinner meals delivered weekly from food boxes and restaurants participating in our Harvest for Hungry program. Olive Garden, Pizza Hut, Red Lobster, Carraba's, Outback, Longhorn Steakhouse, and Cheddars.
So many kids are unable to experience sports in an organized manner due to financial hardship. We want to give those children an opportunity to learn and grow without the worry of paying to play. In 2018 we raised over $21,000 to grant scholarships to play sports.
As kids get ready to go back to school we give them a fresh start with a back pack, school supplies, hair cut, shoes, socks and pants. In 2018 we gave over 1200+ back packs and school supplies, along with 500+ hair cuts and styles to well deserving kids.
During the Holidays we give each family member haircuts, dental treatments, clothes/shoes and toys for the kids. In 2018, we supplied over 7000+ articles of clothing/shoes along with 2500+ toys, bikes, books, balls, etc.
Our homeless supply initiative gives some essential needs to those who are in dire need. We have given sleeping bags, ponchos, socks, hygiene kits, food and more. We initiative have reached the homeless in Seattle, Phoenix, and Salt Lake City since 2016.
