Last Year

Last year, through the generosity of many companies and individuals, we were able to pack 703 backpacks, and then distributed them through our partners: Rebele Family Shelter, Walnut Avenue Women’s Shelter, Elm Street Mission, Harbor Light Church, Live Oak School District, Inner Light Ministries and Barrios Unidos.


Our Mission
