Help a family

Help a family by participating in our seasonal programming.

Each summer and winter, we match community members with PSS families to bring gifts and experiences that the families otherwise might not be able to afford. In the summer, donors help fund summer activities for PSS kids, like swimming lessons or karate. During the holidays, donors have the opportunity to fulfill the family’s Christmas wishes.


Every Summer & Christmas

Operation: Fresh Start

The first day of school is a big day for every child. We host a gift card drive to clothing stores so that our PSS kids can start the new school year with a fresh start. Gift cards allow us to meet each child’s unique needs. Click below to download our flyer to learn more.


Every August

Making Memories Drive

Each holiday season, we collect “experience gifts” to give to our PSS families, like gift cards and tickets to the movies, bowling, ice skating, etc.  When you support the Making Memories drive, you are giving the gift of quality time to a single parent and their children.
