The FestivalNet Giving Tree

Every child deserves to be fed, sheltered, clothed; and, to have the opportunity to grow and be safe with the people they trust. Sadly, for hundreds of thousands of children, this isn’t the case.

The Parenting Path believes positive actions create thriving homes. The non-profit provides a variety of programs to prevent and treat child abuse with 20 different services and support groups, reaching over 10,000 individuals in North Carolina.

Our fearless leader and CEO, Kurt, chose the Parenting Path to receive a portion of our gross profits this month. See all our apples up on our Giving Tree page!
