Many thanks to our
Un-Gala Presenting Supporter:

Winter in our region can be brutally cold. 

Long pants & shirts that fit, warm sweaters & hoodies, socks without holes, winter coats, hats & gloves, are vital to the health and well-being of every child . . . but for families struggling to make ends meet, providing these necessities for their growing children can be out of reach.

Our Gear Up for Winter initiative will supply 35,000 local children with cold weather essentials, in an effort to protect kids from the dangerous elements outside and help them stay warm inside, too. 

Join us in keeping kids warm!
