Angela McNally Founder and President
Did you know?
300 million people in the world have no shoes.
1 Billion children are multidimensionally poor, meaning they lack basic necessities such as clean water, food, housing and medical care
150 million people in the world are homeless. Housing is a human right and homelessness violates that right.
We can't help all of them but surely that ONE helped counts. Be the change you want to see. Help someone in need today, in your city,
community, neighborhood, street-corner, school, church, and nation
Surely together we can make it happen
Pay It Forward and Make it Happen!
We advice you;
STAY SAFE. SOCIAL DISTANCE. WEAR A MASK. WASH HANDS. USE HAND SANITIZER.
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN.
THIS TOO SHALL COME TO PASS!
Statement from the President
This year in March we embarked on a mission Trip to the nation of the Dominican Republic. This has been so far the longest mission trip. We are based in Jarabacoa working with the poor of the poorest in a small refugee camp in La Joya.
This place is filled with Haitian Immigrants who left Haiti in search of a better life. The living conditions are very poor. Many live in little sharks where by when it rains they can't sleep because it rains though. There's no sewer, no electricity, no food, no jobs, no medical care, help.
They need your help.
Would you help a family in La Joya?
Towards the end of last year we had many people approach us in need of food. Covid19 hunger is real and it has affected many in the communities we serve. This year we have managed to partner with some local factories to help us fight covid19 hunger. We partnered with Cargill Meats Solution and they supplied with meats that can help feed at least more than 200 families in the Hazleton area. Also Hazel Meat Factory is helping us freeze the meats as we prepare for this soon coming event.
Many have lost loved ones, lost jobs, lost finances, lost hope and the little we can do to make a difference helps a big deal.

We are giving away Christmas Trees to families affected by Covid19 in our area. This is the least we can do, to help bring back the joy of Christmas to kids and families. It's tough on all of us, but together we can make it happen, together we can stand, and together we can fight this pandemic.
It has been a tough, terrible year for all of us. Many lives have been lost and many families crippled. Communities are paralyzed and folks are hopeless. We believe in unity, togetherness, love, sharing, upliftment and empowering others. That's why we decided to bring some sunshine, some hope and a smile back to faces through Christmas Caroling. We shall be caroling outside nursing homes, and in the communities of Hazleton, West Hazleton, Drums and Freeland starting December Saturday the 5th, 12th, and 19th 24th.
Last Summer we gave away 30 used bikes to kids in need in our area. This year we have collected 60 bikes to benefit kids in need locally. Think back when you were a kid, the kind of freedom a bike brought to you. Every kid deserves a bike. Donate your used/ new bike for a good cause. Give away date is sometime in May
Each Christmas we go to Kensington Philadelphia and celebrate the birth of Jesus with the unwanted, unloved and unwelcomed.
This year we took with us Santa Aka Kensington Santa and a Christmas Tree Aka the Kensington Tree. We served between 400-500 people that day.
Each Year around Thanksgiving time we go to our local police for a visit. This program helps bridge the gap between the police and the community. We get to meet our officers and they get to meet the locals as well.
We Participated for the first time in the Hazleton City Funfest. Giving back to a community that ha given us so much

Thank you for supporting children's education. Together we can make it happen for them. We do this annually and we target poor communities in families. This program has and is helping many students, parents and teachers in away that each student is provided for before school starts. it takes away the pressure and helps kids focus and concentrate on their education. This has helped some kids to improve their grades as well.
On Saturday August 24th we distributed used bike kids in need. I will never for get this 9 year old telling me she's never had a bike in her life. It was a blessing to give her a bike. That was her first time to own a bike and her smile on her face was priceless.
Thank you Friends for supporting us and making it happen for them. #FCMIHBIKES4KIDS

We are always in need of back packs and school supplies such as pencils, pens, erasers, notebooks, rulers, etc. If you would like to donate or volunteer please contact us at 1-8045030674 You can also mail a donation to
