To help end gun violence in our communities and provide aspiring young students with opportunities to achieve their goals, we must do our part. We have many successes under our belt, but we need more help, and that's where you come in. 
​ While you can volunteer with us directly, you can donate items to provide needed supplies and materials for our mentorship and enrichment education programs. There's also much you can do on your own. Contact us to learn more about opportunities and ideas for donating to our fundraising efforts, events, campaigns, or how to involve your community, school or company.
