The month of October the F3 Foundation has a giving campaign. The goal of the campaign is to accelerate the F3 nation’s 3rd F component. A successful month would allow the foundation to hire a full time director to search for large scale donations. Our recent New Hope picnic table fundraiser was a great success, F3F gave a donation to help us reach our goal. If you’d like to learn more checkout the following link. Give 2 Give
