A community’s success is meaningless as long as there are others in the community suffering, so our mission is to uplift and improve the quality of life for the less fortunate in Silicon Valley through the provision of funding for food, clothing, shelter, medical care, education and other basic necessities of life.



All proceeds from the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot “provide health, hope, and a home” and directly benefit the following charitable organizations.
