Community Activist TyRon Jackson started the organization, Operation Warm Wishes (OWW) in 2008 to help serve the "homeless, troubled youths, struggling families, Veterans and senior citizens in need throughout Orange County, CA and the world."
Their mission is to inspire and motivate those who struggle to get back on their feet.
OWW collects food, clothing, shoes, toiletries and other necessities and distributes to those in need daily.
They hold multiple events annually including their Fourth of July food drive, a Father's Say spa and breakfast for homeless fathers and their Reading Program that rewards kids for reading.
Their upcoming event "Hurray! It’s Your Birthday Too!" will let children who deserve don't normally get to celebrate their birthdays because they are homeless, living in motels or their parents can’t afford gifts.
The event was launched last July and will feature food, music and presents for every child.
To join them at the event, and possibly volunteer, here's all the info you need!
Join us for a special time of giving and making a difference in the lives of our children in need.
