Life skills, stress reduction & relaxation techniques implemented through fun recreation
our most vulnerable children feel included, valued, and inspired to reach their full potential.
Hundreds of disadvantaged kids in Pittsburgh struggle on a daily basis to survive in the midst of drugs and violence, poor living conditions, broken families and inadequate educational opportunities. These kids aren't fortunate enough to experience the joy of receiving toys, clothing, books and a hot meal. Christmas comes and goes only with a sense of longing possibly turning into a crisis!

Project reduces a sense of longing, supports health and emotional wellness and raises the academic standard, promotes literacy through a book distribution to improve kids ability to access valuable reading resources written to inspire and help them learn the language skills needed for success.
