2023 Events and Outreach

Our mission is to reach into people's darkest hour and shine a light. Show them love and stand by them when they thought no one cared.

 

“Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”

John 13:35 

Freebird is a not for profit group of loving individuals whose mission is to find those individuals who need help and have no where to turn. We also seek to better our community through taking part in city held events  non-profit events and other clubs/organization's.As we believe everyone can do a little but when you get those that can do a little together it turns into a lot. Every year we run a sponsor program to help with the cost of putting on events and continuing the help for the folks we help. We don’t only put these events on we take them in as family with continued support.

New Sponsor's Information 

If you choose to be a Freebird sponsor we promise to use your donation in full by the end of the year and have $0.00 left in our bank account. December of each year we take part in a tree program to buy presents for children/ bless a local family to ensure we have used all donated and sponsor money. 

A sponsorship includes 

$50.00 to have your name/businesses/or organization on the back of our supporter shirts that are sold at every event we put on or attend 

$100.00 to have your name/businesses/or organization name on both the supporter shirt and banners. Banners are displayed at every event we put on and every meeting 12 meetings a year. All Sponsors also listed here on our Website. As a Sponsor you will not only be helping us to help others you become part of our family as well.

I think its important to note not one Freebird member gets paid for anything we are all volunteers.

2023 

As you will see your sponsorship can go a long way. With $5470.00 in sponsorship income last year we was able to give  out $23,093.97 to help those in our community. Thank you for your time as we know it is very valuable. And thank you for considering helping us spread love in our community.
