How You can help?

MONETARY DONATIONS ARE USED TO...

Purchase umbrellas to sell and gift to those in need.

Purchase bracelets to sell for fundraising. 

Supplement care packages with items not donated by our supporters.

Supplement meals with items not donated by our supporters.

Address unique requests from individuals and families in need. 

Maintain and/or print marketing materials.

For every umbrella sold, an umbrella is gifted to someone in need. Every umbrella has Jeremiah 29:11 printed inside:

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
