It's Community Support Campaign Season!
This is our most IMPORTANT fundraising activity of the year! 
Please support the program that supports you and a child you care about  by saying  "YES"  when we invite you to  make a contribution.
Or, simply  donate now!

- We gratefully accept donations in  ANY amount.

- It costs $1,200 each year to serve  a Big/Little pair.

- 100% of the money from the Community Support Campaign goes directly to serve kids here in SLO County.

- Our goal is to raise $120,000 by the end  of the year!
