MLK Sock Roll Challenge
Update


A big shout out to all of the participants of our 5th Annual MLK Sock Roll Challenge! Clubs, groups, neighborhoods, families and students from various schools all came together to assemble sock rolls for the 2021 Challenge!

Again... things looked a little different this year. But WOW... everyone has really come through! So far... over 5,500 homeless individuals lives have been touched in the month of January from sock rolls alone! There is more to come! Thank you for being a part of it all!
Virtual Workshop Series

#MontcoServes Campaign

We are thrilled to announce that our #MontcoServes campaign is in full swing! Three Montgomery County schools have already taken part in the program.

The mission of #MontcoServes is to reach students in 123 schools (elementary & middle) in Montgomery County PA with service projects. We are seeking corporate and individual sponsorships. Help us reach our goal today!

National Canned Food Month
 
Food Pantries tend to get flooded with food donations between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but by February... the shelves tend to get a little sparse. 

Celebrate this month by checking the wish list of your local food pantry. Pick up some canned foods and make a delivery as a family. #nationalcannedfoodmonth
