PROGRAMS FOR YOU
TO STRENGTHEN OUR COMMUNITY
Being of service to the children in our community is our top priority. We offer tutoring, SAT preparation, and extracurricular arts and crafts. Our summer program went partially virtual last year as we worked within the state guidelines regarding Covid-19. We have had a toy drive and distribution at Christmas for the past three years. Last summer we had a bike giveaway, with riding through the community and free ice cream.

During the pandemic we have also hosted several emergency food distributions when extra has been available from the food bank. Please check with us if you are in need.
And follow our calendar for extra distribution dates and times.
