Feed The Hungry & Frontline Warriors

In honor and in memory of Isaiah DeLeon Mares, help us Feed the Hungry and Feed the Frontline Warriors. For the last 13 years, we have provided kids and families in need with school supplies. In August, right before the kids return to school, we donate over 800 backpacks to kids from several different school districts every year. Then we adopt up to 15 families for Christmas every year.

In 2016 we lost our beloved son Isaiah. We formed Isaiah's Foundation. Click here to visit our Foundation website. The last 3 years we donated 2,500 backpacks stuffed with school supplies and we adopted 27 families for Christmas. Isaiah was a community servant and the COVID-19 crisis would be a call to action for Isaiah to help those in need as well as helping those who are on the front lines.

Isaiah’s whole life was about helping others. When he was accepted to Yale University, the Dean of Students told me that Isaiah had more Community Service on his resume than some of her seniors at Yale! We are doing all we can to carry on his Legacy of Giving. We collaborated with Kids and Families in Need to provide school supplies and Christmas gifts in 2017, 2018 and 2019. This is our 14th year of helping others and we are doing it all in Honor of Isaiah. So, join us on our mission of Love and Giving to the people that really need us!

We are always doing everything we can to help those in need. Our board of directors and family wondered what would Isaiah do if he was alive?  He would definitely be helping others because that’s all he ever did. We decided to Feed the Hungry and Feed the Frontline Warriors in our hospitals.
