We are a 501 c 3 grassroots charity. We raise funds through the schools/businesses in a project called "Change for Change".
Children bring in pocket change or gently used/new items that are realted to extra curricular activities for children. Items such as sport equipment, dance shoes and costumes, cleets, toys, games, balls, gloves, uniforms etc. The items are sold or used to provide the equipment for the children.The funds are used to give disadvantaged/at risk children extra curricular scholarships to local activity facilities. Businesses collect change in donation canisters.
We also help provide clothing and food when needed. Presents at Christmas and Easter in our "Sharing the Truth" program.
