Remembering Our Fallen is a photographic war memorial that honors our country’s military Fallen from The War on Terror. Its legacy will be that these men and women will be remembered and their names will be spoken, while helping to lessen the grief of their families.
It is well documented that vision problems disproportionately affect minority populations. Access to eye care for children is woefully inadequate thereby exacerbating a situation where one in four children cannot see well enough to read. Ultimately this situation fuels the cycle of poverty resulting in juvenile delinquency, crime, unemployment and staggering illiteracy rates. Angels for Sight intends to fill the coverage gap by providing preventive vision care services to uninsured and underserved members of the community they serve.
The goal of the Lucy Pet Foundation is to have spay/neuter and adoption mobile clinics in every major city in the country. With our goal to have at least 40 spay/neuter and adoption mobile clinics, we can really make a significant dent in pet overpopulation. When the mobile clinics are not performing surgeries, we will work with local animal shelters to save dogs and cats whose time is up. We will feature the animals in our mobile adoption portion of the truck at pet retail stores and events. Our goal is to find forever homes for as many homeless pets as possible.
Food Share More than 35 years ago, eight citizens performed a good deed by distributing food to those who were in need underneath a Ventura bridge. The early philanthropic movement quickly formed into what is now Ventura County’s regional food bank, Food Share, which has grown from serving a few hundred hungry people per month to 74,500 people. Today, staff and volunteers distribute more than 12 million pounds of food annually from its distribution site; more than 180 partner agencies, which include neighborhood and church food distributions and soup kitchens; as well as hunger assistance programs. Food Share’s programs provide healthy nutrition and education to children, families and seniors, which include: Kids Share, SENIOR Share, Nutrition Education, Community Market, and more. The regional food bank’s Feed the Line, Shorten the Line efforts draw together community stakeholders and other non-profit and community service organizations to provide county-wide access to resources that facilitate self-sustainability. A 501(c)3 non-profit organization, FOOD Share is a member of the Feeding America network, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization.
