Fundraising

fundraising1We receive funding from individual and corporate donors, community and school group fundraisers, grants, and corporate giving programs. All of our projects require money and volunteers. We also receive donations of certain items which are often collected through drives. Some needed items can be donated and shipped but often times shipping is too difficult or expensive. Below is a list of some of our specific project needs.
