What we do

Our Services

Backpack Drive & Family fun fest

Annually, we host a community service event called the Backpack Drive & Family Fun Fest (BD&FFF). It’s a family friendly, fun-filled, block party style event complete with music, games and food…best of all, it’s FREE! This event is not just a day of fun, it serves as a pathway to “Be a Blessing” by assisting parents in offsetting the costs associated with preparing their students to return to school.

Christmas "be a blessing" gala

The CHRISTmas “Be a Blessing” Gala is an annual charitable event aimed at providing Christmas gifts for foster care and homeless children. A full year of planning culminates beautifully into an amazing evening of entertainment consisting of musical performances, spoken word, inspirational speakers, and prizes all centered around a delicious three course meal.

What Drives Us
