A Message from Bernie Dutra
OneChild has been my passion since its beginning. All children deserve the basic necessities for success in school. At OneChild, we outfit children from our community in a comfortable environment that allows the children to “shop” (free of charge) for their new clothes and supplies in our OneChild store.
The process is reminiscent of the “back-to-school” shopping that is a tradition for many other children in their school. Thus, these children feel the same sense of pride in their school clothes and supplies. We feel privileged to have served over 2600 children so far and we don’t expect to stop there.
OneChild envisions eventually having a facility for children of all ages, which would include tutoring services and recreational activities in addition to the clothing and school supplies.
I have been fortunate to use my passion to help disadvantaged children. We hope that you too will be inspired to help children within the community. We are grateful for your interest and appreciate any contribution to our cause. We know that we cannot succeed without your support.
