Our Vision

We are committed to building a future in which all children have access to comfort, safety, and the learning tools necessary to support their education. Our goal is to remove practical obstructions to learning caused by economic scarcity, such as access to books and warm clothing by building community resilience and fellowship that facilitates the sharing and distribution of these resources!

Our Impact

“Brian saw a need and without a lot of fan fair and recognition, he went to work, to make the lives of these student better and warmer.”

GlenEva Dunham AFT National Vice President, AFT Indiana President, and AFT #4 Gary President

The books [donated by SHCC] are a godsend to our students. The rough economy since the pandemic likely forced many parents to purchase household necessities ahead of books. A lot of them don't have new books at home. There's been a lot of excitement - it's Christmas in May!
