Looking for locations to put collection bins! If your business is willing to be a collection location, please contact us. Bins will be in place for the month of July and donations will be collected by a member of our staff at least weekly.

In 2018, 314 children (along with their parents) attended this event. In 2019, we saw over 400 children! This year, we expect 500+ kids and we do not want any to leave without a new pair of sock and shoes and a backpack full of supplies. Can you help?
