Barrett Foundation Wish List

The Barrett Foundation 

A portion of our proceeds this year will benefit The Barrett House. They are an amazing group of people and a wonderful local charitable organization.

A list of some of the items they need at the home is available by clicking here.

We will be having a "Wish List Drive" on the day of the race. We will be accepting donations to assist them. 

Here are some facts about this great organization:
Helping Women and Children Overcome Homelessness for Over 25 Years 
Collaborative Approach to Homeless Intervention 
Housing/Transitional Living 
Jobs & Skills 
Serves 800 homeless women and children each year, providing 22,000 meals, 7,000 bed nights and 1,000 hours of case management a year 
2 meals served each day in addition to a sack lunch, and clients are provided with toiletries and clothing. 
Family Room, Library w/ computers, laundry facilities and indoor and outdoor play areas.
