Our Keep Giving Initiatives provide annual events for the community.
Every year we call on the community, organizations and businesses around the valley to supply school supplies for underprivileged youth in the community. Our event is held at Washington Park in NW Roanoke. The kids are able to get free haircuts, food, shoes, book bags and hygiene essentials, while ending the day with a swimming party at the pool. Each year we serve over 600 youth. To date we have served 2,700 kids with supplies.
This started as a challenge called “300 Coats In 30 Days.” We ended up surpassing our goal. In order to be even more effective, we began partnering with more local schools and providing brand new coats for their underprivileged youth.
To date, we have distributed 745 brand new coats.
Our newest way to give back to the community. In response to COVID-19, we are partnering with local restaurants to provide a hot dinner to show our gratitude to the Roanoke Valley. We strive to continue to teach love and foster hope to the community who has always supported our mission.
April 25th, 2020- Partnered with Village Grill to provide dinner to all of the students and families in the Imagine Me Mentoring Program in Roanoke City Schools.
Overall we provided over 500 meals to students during our Humble Eats Initiative.
