Last year we were able to give away over 200 + Easter baskets to kids and We are hoping to give even more this year. Safe Haven Kids League of California City (SHKLCC) has been doing amazing things here in our community. We started in a dirt field giving to our community with 10 to 15 people, now we have moved at our local recreation center and have over 150 to 200 people come out and support us. This year we would love to give even more. lt is becoming increasingly difficult for the organization to continue to provide their excellent services to our community. The reason behind this is due to the increasing costs and the current economic environment. That’s the reason why I’m contacting you. I feel strongly about the SHKLCC. Your help to our organization will help us continuously help our community. For more information about SHKLCC (Click Here).
