Overview

Self-reported by organization

For the last 16 years, Every Child, Inc. has had a Backpack Giveaway and a Holiday Party for our neediest children. We have also provided weekend food for families. Along with these priorities, Every Child, Inc. has been giving away books at every event. And, for the last 7 years, we have sponsored the Cinderella Project and last year it was changed to Cinderella and Her Prince, as we raised funds for young men to rent a tux for their prom. Our two newest projects are "Welcome Baby" and "Let' B Safe"
