The backpack program is held  each year the first Tuesday of August in conjunction with Neighborhood Night Out in the Tres Colonias. This program helps many children of all background that come from working class and low income families with a new backpack and supplies to start the new school year. This program has helped so many families in the past years of this program.  In doing this program in conjunction with NNO it helps to foster neighborhood connections to get to know one another. We take donations all year round so we don't have to start over each year. To get a tax donation form it is important to keep your receipt  and attach it with your donation.

Posadas a is cultural event, Posadas means to give shelter, this is the reenactment of Mary and Joseph looking for shelter when Mary is about to give birth to baby Jesus. The gift giving part of this event is to help families with new gifts for the children, it has expanded to the whole family now, teens, moms and dads. Moms appreciate fuzzy blankets and kitchen towels, as well as costume jewelry, and dads appreciate hair supplies and cologne. Teens, hair supplies, make up and jewelry, boys hair supplies and cologne.  We have seen where Christmas is the importance of remembering the true meaning of Christmas but it is a time when many families are struggling and helping with gifts is a blessing that we have seen first hand how appreciative people are. We see to many families of all backgrounds fall through the cracks and we want to be sure to do our part to help as many families as we can. This has only been possible with the kindness and generosity of the business community and community at large.
