Fundraise

We have formed relationships with High Schools to educate teens on various ways to give back to the community.

We conduct field trips with local High School students,  volunteering time at shelters, soup kitchens amongst other places of need within the community.

Tux & Chucks is our annual end of the year fundraiser where we honor grassroots organizations we have supported throughout the year.  We also host other fundraisers during the year.
