Dear FRIENDS and PARTNERS:

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!!

NOW, as we reflect upon impact that was made last year, we realize that we could not have done such accomplishments alone. And, we look forward to impacting an even greater number of underserved families this new year.  For we truly believe that the BEST is yet to come.   

Accomplishments for 2016 included:

  • On December 17th at theToys to Needy KIDZ Rally allowed us to impact 2500 children which consisted of: providing 134 families (who were physically present with their children at the rally gifts)  additionally in this amount, we provided gifts to children in the community;  and families of youth incarcerated at the Department of Youth Rehabilitative Services  gifts was phenomenal.

  • On November 19th,  at the Thanksgiving Rally, Provided 811 families Food Baskets for their Thanksgiving Dinner.

  • Provided at our August Back to School Rally back packs filled with school supplies for 2000 DC Public School students;
