Our philanthropic programs are funded completely through grants, fundraising events, contributions from the community and our thrift shop sales.

The thrift shop on Via Montezuma is our main source of funding.  The shop is staffed and managed entirely by our member volunteers.  Donations are always welcome and are tax deductible.

You can be assured that your every contribution, whether it be in dollars or in hours, goes directly to a child or family in need.
