How You Can Help?

“Let ALL the Big Dawgs Eat” relies on the generous contributions of private donors. Your donation to the food scholarship will have immediate and direct impact on the success of our students. Indeed, your gift could make the difference between a student successfully graduating and leaving school simply because of an inability to secure nutrition.
