These events are “all hands on deck” events; from providing parking help, to helping a child try on shoes, to providing a Thanksgiving meal to a family in need, to sponsoring a child for Christmas.

Our Partners

YMCA
The YMCA is known as a great place to get healthy and fit, but, one thing you may not know is their commitment to help the surrounding community. North, along with other non-profits, local businesses, and government grants, partner with the YMCA on their projects to help bring food and meals to those in need, provide produce to local “food deserts”, and provide preschool education to poor communities.
