It’s that time of year again — The Big Give SA 2023!

This is a day of giving for hundreds of nonprofit organizations in the San Antonio area.

WHY BIG GIVE IS SO IMPORTANT THIS YEAR?

Big Give 2023 will return for their 10th anniversary of fundraising success on Wednesday September 20 at 6 PM thru Thursday September 21 at 6 PM.

Our Big Give Goal

Recently, we have had a scare from a nearby wildfire. During this time we realized we need to amp up our safety protocols to make sure we keep the kids safety our first priority! With this we need to enhance the safety of our children by putting a fire hydrant in the middle of our property so we can be more prepared in instances like this. We also need another van to transports kids to and from places. We recently increased our capacity from 35 to 45 so with more kids comes needing another van to transport all our kids at once.

Our goal at TruLight127 for the Big Give 2023 is to raise $20,000. The funds raised will be used to improve the safety of our children at the village.

Since TruLight Youth Village officially opened its homes and beds to foster children in September 2019, we have helped over 1500 children placed in the foster care system. In addition to our 4 houses, lovingly furnished by the incredible hearts of our donors, opening the Discovery house is just another way that we can make TruLight Village a safe home where these children can grow and learn.

Make the greatest impact today with your donation to continue the mission of TruLight127 Ministries.
