Our partnership was our way in showcasing true American spirit in working together for a better America, united for the greater cause of humanity. We had 546 homeless served with a bar-b-que picnic. Supplies distributed to the homeless were thermal socks; ponchos; hoodies; knitted caps; mittens; scarves; 1st aid kits; school kits; and hygiene kits. In addition, resource information; health counselors and barbers for haircuts were made available.

Our local youth from 12-18 years of age provided their time and services with packaging and manning booths and distributing the supplies. For our youth, this is an excellent way to gain awareness and respect for the human condition.
We want to groom our youth to take more leadership roles with community well-being activities and to pass the baton over to the next generation.
