What we have accomplished over the years due to YOUR donations!

  • In the past 5 years The Red Shield has tripled the numbers in the at-risk teen program - touching more teens that are high risk than ever before!
  • The Shield also has a full functioning computer lab where community children can come and learn how to type and practice testing for school.
  • The boxing program is now sanctioned, and hosts 2 events yearly. This gives children the self esteem and discipline to tackle life!
  • The gymnasium has now been refurbished and serves 50-100 people daily!
