You + Generosity = Impact

Celebrate with us!  We collected supplies for 550 students, and on July 14, we hosted a huge distribution party, that included free haircuts, bingo, making necklaces, playing games, photo booths, and food.  These local students in foster care will be able to start the school year off right with a backpack and plenty of school supplies!
