School & Community Initiatives

Through your efforts and donations, we are proud to have supported our local Schools & Community Initiatives.

This year we will be fundraising for:

Henry G. Izatt Middle School

Stride Ahead Tough Track

Save Our Youth Foundation

Whyte Ridge Elementary School


As people benefitting in a society, we have an obligation to give something back. Not always do you get to choose how you can do this. Sometimes through tragedy there is an awakening to problems that are plaguing our society.

We are fortunate to have had a very special son who not only lived the struggles of his generation but understood the importance of finding answers. He was a person who always sought the truth no matter how difficult. Those who knew Jesse understood his compassion for the less fortunate and his acceptance and forgiveness of others. The world has lost somebody who freely stood for those who could not stand for themselves.

SOY Foundation

Save Our Youth

One of the greatest challenges our Youth are facing in this time is the pandemic of prescription drug addiction and mental health issues; devastating families and robbing our Youth of reaching their full potential.

Our foundation is committed to supporting Youth and their Families struggling with addictions and mental health issues. Through our endeavor we hope to bring about systemic social change.

Make a Donation to SOY

We would like to thank the Whyte Ridge community for joining with SOY to raise awareness.
