BUY A BRICK - BUILD A DREAM

Our Mission

We want to build a walkway of "dreams" on our campus.  You can purchase a brick in your name, or to honor someone.  We'll have their name engraved as a permanent reminder of how much you care!

Hunger isn't seasonal, which is why our year-round food drive is so important. Devote an afternoon to stocking our pantry or volunteer to help with one of our activities or camp projects and see first-hand the families we help daily. Can't volunteer?  Donate!
