The FPIES Foundation
September 6, 2013

We have a grand son with FPIES. This organization has been a blessing to him, Chase, and his family. FPIES is difficult to diagnose and many doctors have not even heard of this health issue. It is severe reaction to almost all foods and there is no way to find out which food will set off a reaction except to try the food and see. This makes life so difficult on both the child and his/her family. The FPIES foundation provides information, support, and inspirational stories which all help the family. Please support this important foundation!

FRIENDS OF THE CHILDREN OF THE KLAMATH BASIN
September 6, 2013

Friends of the Children, Klamath Basin Chapter, is a unique, one on one adult relationship with a deserving child. They hire paid mentors who select children in the first grade and see and work with that child for 12 years! The main goals are that the children will graduate from high school or at least get their GED's, the children will NOT get involved negatively with the justice system, and they will NOT become teen parents. Mentors work with their children at least four hours every week, one on one, 52 weeks of the year. They help with homework, they introduce the children to community outings like parks, walking trails, museums, dog shows, bowling, etc. A good deal of time is spent helping with homework or dealing with difficulties at school. This is an amazing organization that truly makes a difference in a child's life by sticking with them through the good times and the bad times and letting that child know there will always be someone who cares!
