First Chance Foundation is an incredible Non Profit organization for Children in Need. No child should ever be without. First Chance supports other Non profit organizations as well as helps local children in need. The kindness and sincerity of this organization is above many. You honestly would be hard pressed to find another non profit organization who goes above and beyond as this organization does. Its all from the Heart! Its so awesome to hear about the smiles on the kids faces when they receive the every day items that our children are so use to having. These kids do not have, hard to imagine not having toiletry items, hair brushes, backpacks for school just simple every day items and to know they are excited to get. Wow. If your looking to donate to an organization this is the one to donate to. Every cent counts so there is never anything to small it all adds up. With your willing to give, First Chance Foundation can go that extra mile to help give kids what they need. In life its about giving not receiving. If you want to full fill your heart try giving to this organization you heart will thank you as you will know you made a difference in a child's life. How awesome is that. Thank you First Chance Foundation for all you do!

First Chance Foundation is an extraordinary organization! They collect toiletries and school supplies to provide to kids in need. These basic items are so important but often overlooked because they aren't "fun" to donate, but that doesn't stop First Chance! My favorite thing that First Chance Foundation does is throwing birthday parties for kids who otherwise would do without. They even tailor it to the child's (or teen's) taste in food, colors, and cake theme! First Chance Foundation also supports other child-focused nonprofits. They really have a far reach! Anyone who supports First Chance Foundation can be confident that his/her donation will really make a difference!

First Chance Foundation is a wonderful organization. I had the pleasure of working with them at a back to school hair-a-thon for kids in need. The first thing I noticed was First Chance Foundation numerous amounts of gift bags for the kids. The things they do for our youth is amazing. If I could give it 10 stars I would⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐. I could only hope other organizations could be the blessing that First Chance Foundation has been to many children
