The Charities

Stillbrave Childhood Cancer Foundation
Tom Mitchell
Easing The Burden of Cancer

Our mission is to provide non-medical, supportive care to children with cancer and their families. The vision of Stillbrave? We are committed to helping the families of children battling cancer in any way we can. So while they are fighting the toughest war of their lives, we will fight their lesser battles, so they don’t have to. We are not only here to support children with cancer, we are here to help ease the burden of the family and the caregivers who are fighting battles of their own. But What Does That Mean? It means that while a family is struggling to be there for their child, we will do whatever we can to help ease their burden.

ACTS – Action in Community Through Service

Fostering Hope, Providing Relief

Action in Community Through Service (ACTS) has been fostering hope, providing relief, and promoting self-sufficiency for our neighbors for nearly fifty years. We do this by providing for their most basic physical needs, such as food, clothing, and shelter, as well as emotional healing from the effects of domestic violence, sexual assault, and suicide. Last year, we provided services for nearly 93,000 individuals. This includes an average of 650 households who had food to eat (600,100 lbs total) who otherwise would have been hungry.
