Focus

Mars/Seneca Valley School Districts – Provide baskets to school-designated families at Easter & Thanksgiving.

During Easter and Thanksgiving we make baskets that go to the homes of 20 local families from Mars and Seneca Valley Schools  Our goal is to give back to someone that needs our help over the holiday season and you can be a big part of that.  Please see the donation list below of items that are needed!  Items can be donated at either campus.
