Our longest running project at 27 years is our recognition program (in conjunction with Neighborhood Extra) for middle school Students of the Week. We've given over $20,000 in scholarships to Seniors from Lincoln High School. We are ongoing supporters of Homers Heroes, Boy Scouts and Junior Achievement. So many other projects and organizations over the years to list them all!
We meet every Wednesday at 7 a.m. at Stauffer's Cafe and Pie Shoppe (5600 S. 48th Street). We usually have a speaker to share what's going on in their organization. Come visit - no pressure and your first breakfast is on us!
