FAM is all about events that change lives! Whether a Christmas party to give gifts to hundreds of underprivileged children, a Thanksgiving dinner, or a Gala to raise funds to end hunger and homelessness in our community, FAM hosts dozens of events each year.
Here is a summary of just a few of our upcoming events for 2016.
For 29 years this walk has raised funds to help prevent hunger and homelessness in Orange County. In 2016 we aim to gather more people than ever to raise money for those FAM serves. We will be calling on individuals, businesses, schools, and faith communities to form “FAM Clubs” to help us in our mission!
Stay tuned for details!
We are so pleased to be in the early stages of our first blockbuster FAM Gala! We are working hard on making it an elegant night of fun, as we focus on FAM’s mission to our community!
In addition to our normal Monday through Friday hours, we also open our doors on the second Saturday of every month. We provide food, and also a particular special need. Past events have included free backpacks for kids, medical supplies, and flu shots.
Bringing joy and comfort to children is at the heart of FAM. Each Easter, we gather hundreds of underprivileged families for a pancake breakfast, followed by Easter basket give aways and an Easter egg hunt!
Held each fall, this is one of our premiere events for business and community leaders. Check back for details!
We host a Thanksgiving Eve meal that feeds well over 500 needy people in our community each year. We provide a warm home-cooked dinner, meals to go, and live music in a warm family environment.
In 2015, we made Christmas possible for hundreds of children, many of whom would have received no gifts. Over 1,000 children saw Santa, ate cookies and drank hot cocoa, because of the generosity of our donors.
