Back to School
Every year we know it’s tough for kids to go back to school with items that they may have already grown out of. No child wants to go to school with uncomfortable, old shoes, a broken backpack, or not enough school supplies. Any client family in good standing could be eligible for some of these items to make sure their children are ready to go back to school!
Christmas with Mercy
Christmas is not about the toys, but it is about giving. It’s about Christ being born, giving joy to us who so desperately need him. For any client family who is eligible, we provide a lottery system for the opportunity of a parent shopping experience to make sure every child has something new on Christmas to look forward to and every parent experiences the joy of giving!
