Host a Drive

Our families struggle financially and this is one way we can help relieve their financial burden. Host a drive to collect items including but not limited to diapers, toys, safety items, backpacks filled with school supplies, etc. Contact Sarah Jalandoon for more information.

Host a third-party event! 

You can raise money and awareness for the prevention of child abuse by hosting an event in your community.  Event ideas include dinners, auctions, poker runs and dine-to-dine donate nights, as well as smaller scale events such as car washes and dress down days.  A third-party event is conducted, promoted and financed by an individual or organization.  Contact Laurel Stanley, Special Events VISTA for more information.
