Giving from the Heart is a program operated by the Life Outreach Restoration Center to not only meet the needs of a select number of disadvantaged families, but to exceed their expectations by providing toys and clothes to the children.

It is our desire to meet those needs and to give hope to the children and single parents that do not have the means to provide during this time.

Thanks to our partners!
