Christmas Program

Last year, almost 1,100 Lakeland area children woke on Christmas morning to find presents under the tree thanks to the generosity of the Lakeland area community.

Backpack Program

We provide 43% of elementary school children in the Lakeland Union High School District with the high quality supplies they need to succeed – all stuffed into stylish, brand-new backpacks.

All Volunteer Workers

We have no paid staff. All work is done exclusively by volunteers.

Fiscal Responsibility

We aggressively manage overhead to 5% of our budget, so 95% of your cash donation goes directly to work in our programs

Your Donations Needed!

We are funded exclusively by donations from businesses, individuals and organizations. We are a 501c(3) non-profit, so your entire donation is fully tax deductible as permitted by law.
