is almost here!

Join us between now and November 30th to help over 500 local children from low-income areas get basic protection from Miami’s chilly weather – especially when they get dropped off early at school or daycare on cold mornings.

This year, the first $20,000 raised will be generously matched dollar for dollar by Jimmy and Janie Tate.

A special thanks to our partners: Center State Bank Logo

We leverage our unique role as convener, strategic funder, service provider, awareness builder, and influencer so that everyone in Miami-Dade has access to quality education and the opportunity to lead healthy and financially secure lives — the building blocks of a thriving community.
