The Joy Christmas cheer!!! This Christmas our foundation was able to help make Christmas wishes come true with the help of the Noblemen (Virginia Beach), Pastor Marvin Smith of Faith In Action Church (Norfolk) and Cash Converters (Chesapeake).  We would also like to thank the individuals and local area business who also donated to our annual Christmas drive.  We distributed toys to over 80 children and provided food baskets to approximately 40 families.  We give thanks to those who helped make a difference in the lives of those in need.  Thank You!!

Our Annual Thanksgiving Food Basket Program was a success this year as we helped a little over 150 families for the Thanksgiving Holiday. We are extremely greatful to those who helped make the holiday brighter for families in need.  We give thanks to Rose & Womble Realty Company, Sacred Heart Catholic Church & Faith In Action Church.  We would also like to thank those who also gave donations of food pantry items and those volunteers who helped assemble & deliver the food baskets to our clientele. We are extremely appreciative of the continued support for our holiday program.
