About Us

Unity in Community
Sometimes it takes only one act of kindness and caring to change a person's life.”
It takes a team of dedicated volunteers to make sure our organization is reaching out to as many communities as it can so families everywhere have access to our free "Boxes of Love". We're fortunate to have some of the best dedicating their time, energy, and expertise to our cause.

Our "Boxes of Love" consist of a Full Turkey Dinner and all of the Trimmings including Dessert.

Every smile beautifies a community.

A dream team to hand out dream smiles.
