Although the Pandemic had postponed our 2020 & 2021 fundraisers, the community's needs greatly increased.

We continue to help support the community by giving to local food drives and Oldsmar Cares Food Pantry, providing youth and adult masks to our local schools, helping the Sheriff's Youth Ranch, Chi Chi Rodriguez Youth Foundation, Clearwater Free Clinic, the YMCA, Humane Society and many more.

Giving in 2020
