Make A Difference Serving Opportunities

For an at-risk child, basic needs that we take for granted, such as food and hygiene items, are not always readily available. This makes concentrating at school difficult and has an unhealthy effect on their self-esteem. There is not much they can do to change their circumstance, but there is something you can do. They matter. Every child matters!

Click below to see how you can help make a difference in the lives of at-risk children in your community.
