Happy Summer everyone!

Our organization was very busy at the end of the school year. We distributed $6,000 in donations to families and teens in need of assistance over the summer. We’re looking forward to telling you more about it and discussing many new things happening with our organization at our kickoff for the 2016-17 school year!
