BACK 2 SCHOOL

At the beginning of the school year, every child (Kindergarten thru 9th Grade) will receive a new school uniform/clothes, school supplies and hygiene products. These kids have enough challenges in life as it is, so if they can start the school year off well prepared and feeling confident in themselves, they will do better in school and get better grades.

FAMILY MATTTERS

Various needs can occur at any time and so our Family Matters Program helps with those needs. One portion that falls under this program is that we assist with household needs such as laundry detergent, toilet paper, toothpaste, shampoo and other household supplies. We will provide a "household box" on an emergency/as needed basis.

SUMMER CAMP

 

​​

At the beginning of the school year, a few kids are given a challenge to get good grades in school. If they achieve this goal, they are rewarded with a week at summer camp in Northern Arizona (near Mormon Lake). They will roast marshmallows, hike, fish, kayak, horseback ride, learn outdoor skills, etc. This is will be an experience of a lifetime that they will never forget.

Phoenix Children’s Project provides them with all the supplies they will need including sleeping bag, canteen, hiking boots, swim trunks, backpack, sunscreen, etc.

The children enjoy coming to the center where we also provide lunch, snacks and dessert.

WELCOME BABY

When a mother of one of our children is expecting a new baby, we provide a diaper bag filled with items needed to welcome the baby into the world. Each new diaper bag contains new-baby essentials, such as diapers, wipes, bottles, sleepers, lotion, etc.

If you would like to donate food to our pantry, please reach out to us for specific needs.  We can use both frozen foods and non-perishables. 

Any household with children under the age of 18 may receive a food box. Each food box contains a few days worth of food which includes meat and other food items the family can prepare at home.   

We receive food donations from Midwest Food Bank and also accept meat and food donations from individuals. If you would like to donate food to us, let us know and we will send you a list of needed items.
