Thanks to everyone who joined us at United Way’s WeekEND Hunger Backpack event yesterday! With your help, United Way will be able to distribute over 1,400 food bags to children in need throughout the valley! All of the children were amazing helpers. They definitely proved that you don’t have to be big to make a HUGE difference in our community!!
Thanks to everyone who joined us for Reading with Friends at Homeward Bound! All of the children and volunteer families had a great time reading to one another and we were able to donate 1500 books to their library. Plus, each resident was given a book of their choice to take home as a gift. Thank you to Justin who alone was able to collect 3500 books which will be given to children throughout the valley!
On Saturday, August 10th, Families Giving Back volunteer families participated in United Way’s WeekEND Hunger Backpack event, where we helped assemble over 1,400 food bags for children in need.

On June 15th, volunteer families spent one-on-one reading time with children who live at North 17, a “next step” housing complex for families who are at risk or formerly homeless. Volunteer families brought books to donate, and collectively, Families Giving Back donated close to 100 books to the library at North 17. Each child was also able to pick a book to take home as a gift.
