The All You Can Inc Realizes That the Change from fall to winter could be brutal when the opportunity to prepare does not present itself. We annually Bring awareness to this cause by asking local businesses and residents to Donate New and slightly used coats to be redistributed. Families benefit both children and adults from these efforts through their financial hardships. We also have food, Toiletries and more as apart of our basic needs and emergency resource initiatives. This program requires no registration and is free for all in attendance annually.
Thanksgiving is a time for family and community. A time when a Hot meal can bring together a community and begin the healing we all need.

The Give Thanks Community thanksgiving dinner is a no registration program free to the general public. During the program we also Have clothing, Coats, Non perishable food and toiletries as apart of our basic needs and emergency resource initiatives.

Here at All You Can Inc we believe that its all of our responsibility to ensure the best education possible for our students. Through this annual drive were able to assist in student retention by supplying the essentials to be sucessful in the classroom. From June through August we collect items at participating stores in the area. When school is near the years beginning we meet with the schools administrators and drop off a surplus of supplies for each of the 12 schools in the district. Not only do we get the students off to school with supplies we replenish through the year to ensure we keep the students on taks and in class.
Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, we had to learn how to adapt and still service the community. That's how we developed the Fathers day Grab and Go community cookout.

Show up on the day of, give your name and our volunteers will load the trunk of the car up. Safe, secure all while practicing social distancing. Fathers will receive to go cookout meals along with brand new teddy bears and greeting cards of appreciation. This is a great initiative for dedicated fathers who sometimes can get overlooked.
