We were proud and grateful to hold our annual event in Marydel!

Thanks to Gianna D’Esposito for creating this wonderful video!

We are an all-volunteer organization and a registered 501(c)(3).  We bring love and necessities directly to homeless and poverty-stricken men, women, and children every Saturday and Sunday no matter the weather and including holidays.  We also hold many themed parties annually for those whom we serve.
