2015 Charity Fundraiser

As we look forward to the holidays we would like to inform all of you that this year we will once again be running our annual fundraiser. This year we will once again be accepting donations for Redlands Family Service Association.

Redland FSA was formed in 1898 by Alfred Smiley. The group began as the Associated Charities of Redlands and members paid 25 cents a month to join. Members were tasked with going out into the community to tend to the ill and the destitute.

Today the Redlands FSA still tends to the ill and the destitute but the need has grown. They work with families to provide food, clothing, rental assistant, basic life-skills coaching and family budgeting. Their goal is to make the family self-sufficient. In addition to family assistance they have a homeless outreach center where they provide temporary housing, food, clothing and hygiene kits. This is an awesome group who hand out hope daily to those who have lost hope. Please join us in helping to provide a happy holiday to families and children who deserve a little happiness.

We will be accepting donations via cash or check out both our November technical meeting and our Jingle Bell Mingle in December. You can also make a donation via the Paypal button below.
