Our 2021 Programs

School Supply Program

We assembled and distributed school supplies for over 150 students at Riverside, Banner, Darlington, Union City, Calumet, Epic, and home school students.

Families with Children Program

We served over 1300 families with seven distributions this year.

Festival of the Trees

Because of your generosity, we raised over $40,000 at the 2021 Festival of the Trees. Thank you for helping us serve families and children in Canadian County.

Save the date for the 2022 Festival of Trees – July 21, 2022.

A Permanent Home

Through a partnership with the City of El Reno, we have a 99 year lease of the former “old pool house.” We appreciate this important partnership!

We are excited to get started on the renovations so we can move into our new permanent home. Then we will pursue our dream of eventually building a warehouse directly behind our new facility.

You can help us with our Capital Campaign through your one time, monthly, quarterly or annual donation. You can also donate in honor of someone special for a birthday, holiday or memorial.
