Every night we’ll be collecting food for OneGenAway, so please bring non-perishable food items

We Need Volunteers
Our volunteers come from a number of churches, other civic organizations, companies and individuals who want to help out – including food recipients themselves. OneGenAway provides a number of options to volunteer: We always need volunteers at our Food Distribution events when we typically distribute 20,000 pounds of food to approximately 280-300 families.

With a warehouse in Franklin, we also need volunteers now to do some of the organizing and boxing (so that our food distributions can be even more efficient). If you have other skills that you think could benefit us (like fundraising), we would love you to participate.

And We Need Financial Donations!
Any amount small or large to keep feeding more of the needy.

“Man Up Crusade” Against Domestic Violence

Benefiting Bridges Domestic Violence Center

The mission of the Man Up Crusade™ is to reduce domestic violence in society and contribute to social change by promoting safe and healthy relationships through education, advocacy and funding community services and programs that share in our mission.

The Man Up Crusade™ was created by Canyon County Sheriff, Kieran Donahue. Kieran grew up on a cattle ranch in Eastern Idaho and learned from an early age the definition of hard work and dedication. His western heritage taught him strong family values and gave him the strength to overcome trials and tribulations.

As Kieran’s career in law enforcement developed, he saw first-hand the traumatic affects that domestic violence has on victims and their families. Domestic Violence has become an epidemic in our society and is a public health and safety issue – it is with these facts in mind that Kieran began this journey called the Man Up Crusade™.

Kieran and his wife Jeanie live the western lifestyle everyday and what a better tie in to their program than the American Cowboy…people all over country idolize the cowboy image and the western way of life. The cowboy is an iconic figure of strength, conviction and fortitude. The cowboy never backs away from a job or never quits until the task before him is finished. The cowboy understands the fundamental belief that right is right and wrong is wrong. It is the goal of the Man Up Crusade™ to celebrate this courageous spirit and be an example to people everywhere that we can stand up for what is right and help put an end to domestic violence.

Bridges Domestic Violence Center in Franklin serves women, men, and their children affected by domestic violence, ensuring a safe transition to successful independent living through education, intervention, and case management.

Are You Tough Enough to Wear Pink?

Benefiting Williamson Medical Breast Health Center

Together we are fighting breast cancer and raising money to help find a cure. Wear your pink to show support for those fighting the fight and those who have concurred it. The money we raise goes to the Williamson Medical Center – Breast Health Center to help local patients who have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer.

Tough Enough to Wear Pink  was created by entrepreneur and breast cancer survivor Terry Wheatley to bring the sport of professional rodeo and the western community together to rally against breast cancer. Since its inception in 2004, TETWP has empowered rodeos and western events in the U.S. and Canada to focus attention on the need for a cure. To date, the campaign has raised $5 million dollars for breast cancer charities, much of which stays right in the community.  The grassroots movement has inspired other sports communities to mount their own TETWP campaigns, spreading a message of hope and support that reaches beyond the rodeo arena to competitors, families and fans across America.

You can find out more about the TETWP by visiting the official website at www. toughenoughtowearpink.com
