This year marks the 70th anniversary of Heifer International.


Imagine– 70 years and over 20 million families lifted from poverty to self-reliance!  Heifer’s successes can be attributed to hundreds of communities around the world–your church prominent among them–who are committed and caring partners sharing the vision of a just and sustainable world free from hunger and poverty.


During this anniversary year, in country-wide regional celebrations named Beyond Hunger, individuals, civic groups and faith communities like yours are invited to celebrate the progress being made in lifting up the problem of food insecurity and Heifer’s unique community development solution.

Shoulder To Shoulder seeks to unite corporate community leaders to join us in “Breaking the Cycle of Fatherlessness” in Del Paso Heights. Young men growing up generationally fatherless are raised primarily by a single mom or grandmother, and taught principally by female teachers in the midst of drug dealers, pimps, prostitutes, convicted felons, gangs, violence, addicts, and alcoholics, without any HOPE for the future.


Now is the time to reserve your partnership or sponsorship commitment to support this very important mission . . . saving a young man’s life! Together we will make a difference in their future!


We are seeking Sacramento area “difference makers” to partner with the Igniting Hope Gala on October 24.  Please consider becoming a Corporate Partner or Sponsor and enabling STS to continue changing lives. Please contact us at (916) 285-5422 or visit


Together we will make a difference!


With great anticipation,
