Just before Christmas in 1984, Beverly Perham used $500 of her own money to provide clothing and toys for 30 children who had just arrived on a boat from Haiti with absolutely nothing.
From that, she realized there were many children in our own community that don't even have the basic necessities.
Beverly recognized the importance of school children having the basic necessities in order to attend school and learn.
As a result, the Angel Program was born.
The Angel Program provides children with new sneakers, socks, underwear and a gift during the winter holidays.
Beverly knew that these gifts would be an important gesture to a needy child, and could perhaps change a child's outlook towards learning.
Along the way, Beverly learned that many of the children she helped would still miss school because they could not afford to buy school uniforms.
So in 2001, Beverly started the Uniform Program and began providing new school uniforms for the children.
