2014 Annual Report now available

2014 was an outstanding year for our organization and the students we serve. We received more donations and awarded more scholarships than ever before. Our scholarship recipients continue to graduate high school at a 100% rate. The alumni group from our first program year in 2009 became college graduates. We initiated a summer internship program with Kaehler Luggage Co., and we reinvented our annual event to feature a storytelling theme that was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended.
