HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Help us keep the Sunday Friends kids engaged during the pandemic. Create fun, educational take-home STEM kits that will be distributed at our drive-thru!

DESCRIPTION

Sunday Friends empowers families to break the generational cycle of poverty by fostering positive development in children while educating and guiding parents to support their children's life success.

It is exhausting for children to stare at computer/TV/phone screens all day during quarantine. It is also challenging for parents to keep their children occupied while they juggle other duties. Help us keep the Sunday Friends kids engaged with some fun, educational take-home kits!
