We are a non-profit organization serving western Canadian County. With the help of our community (partners, volunteers and donors) we provide several programs for families with children as well as an annual Christmas program to provide food and other essential items for individuals and families.
The individuals and families we serve live in Canadian County west of Banner Road and meet certain household income qualifications. If your children qualify for free or reduced lunches, you will qualify for our programs.
Our Christmas Baskets program has served families with children since 1999. We provide food, personal care items, blankets and toys for over 2000 people (including over 900 children) each year!
This program is made possible through community donations, the United Way of Canadian County, the Mary K Ashbrook Foundation, and our many wonderful volunteers who serve in all capacities of the program.
We know we are meeting the physical needs of these families. We believe that knowing the community cares about them also helps meet their psychological and emotional needs.
Families with Children
Summer Food Program
The Families with Children Summer Food Program began in 2012 and continues to grow every year. We provide kid-friendly food to hundreds of families with children during the summer.
Our partners in this program include The Lord’s Harvest, the United Way of Canadian County, the Mary K Ashbrook Foundation as well as numerous donors from our community. We also receive many generous grants to help us serve families and children.
Monthly Grocery Program
Through our Monthly Grocery Program, we are assisting with the nutrition portion of a program provided through a grant to the City of El Reno. The program provides assistance to individuals or families who have been impacted financially as a result of the pandemic. This program provides monthly distribution of groceries.
