Our Plan

The plan provided a Christmas Lunch for 200 families of x prisoners. We raised $2110 to make this event possible. We are collected gifts for these families have no other resources available to them. We have hosted this luncheon for x prisoners and their families for 3 years now. The testimony of some of the x prisoners at the luncheon are profiles in courage, grit and determination as they try to turn their lives around. On Dec 11th the team got together and brought gifts for these families. On Dec 12th we hosted a chess tournament where we raised additional funds and asked the tournament players to bring more gifts as well. Our team consists of the following Youth who have won the Presidential Service Award from the White House for their humanitarian work.
