(Victor Valley)– Did you know that 35% of families in our community are struggling to make ends meet? When basic necessities such as rent, food and utility bills become difficult to maintain, many children in our own neighborhoods become homeless and go to bed hungry. Though children may not be able to control their living conditions, they clearly feel the weight as their health, behavior, self-esteem, and education are impacted.
Our goal is to change the path for low-income kids in the Inland Empire – but we can’t do it alone. We’ve launched the Challenge for Children to help 10,000 local youth this year by feeding hungry children, housing the homeless, and equipping at-risk students for academic success and a self-sufficient future.
Will you join us? On or before December 1st, the National Day of Giving, please make the choice to help kids in our community. For as little as $10, you can feed four children for a weekend. We are proud that every dollar stays local, and 88% of each donation is directed to program activities.
Thank you for stepping up to the Challenge for Children! If you want to multiply the impact of your gift, tell others. Simply create a fundraising page by clicking here and share with your family and friends to help us impact even more local children!
