The Make a Difference Foundation is a non-profit organization that was formed to fill a need both locally and nationally. Since the beginning, our foundation has granted scholarships for college, provided travel for athletes, shoes for orphans, holiday gifts, clothing and food for the homeless. Here are just some of the ways The Make a Difference Foundation has been able to help.
Volunteers feed the homeless each month by delivering food bags, hot soup, homemade cookies, blankets, jackets, gloves, and socks to those living on the streets. Most importantly, volunteers take the time to visit, pray, and listen.
The Make a Difference Foundation donated hundreds of pairs of shoes to the children in Haiti and Honduras.
