How it started

Travis, Teisha, and Matt decided to have a charity kickball game with a non-perishable food item as an entry fee. The donations would go to a local food bank with a program for children during the summer. They were able to donate 202 pounds of food and $40 to the organization. After seeing the impact the game and donations had on the community. They decided to start an organization based on their values to benefit their communities.
