A Father’s Day Giveaway!

Published on

VICTORVILLE — The cars wrapped around the Burning Bush Church parking lot, Saturday, were lined up to receive care packages for a Father’s Day treat. Young Visionaries, an award winning San Bernardino based organization, provided 500 families with gifts for father’s and their families.

“It’s Father’s Day weekend and we’re blessing up to 500 fathers with all kinds of stuff,” said Young Visionaries CEO and Founder Terrance Stone. “I feel like as a father and a grandfather, we just are left out sometimes, but today is our day, so we’re just giving out all this stuff to all these people. It’s going to be incredible.”

Care packages included sanitary items and gifts for fathers and their children. Freshly cooked tacos were also provided.

Stone partnered with the Burning Bush Church to host the giveaway. The church provided the venue for the giveaway and church members also volunteered in handing out goods. Other community partners include Walmart, NBC4 You and Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County.

“The Burning Bush is involved in the event today as a support system, “ said Burning Bush Church Deacon Team Leader Larry Lewis. “It’s our goal to be involved in community affairs…as much as possible. We are here to work. We are here to support whatever we can. Our goal is to be a primary cog in the city of Victorville.” 

Young Visionaries hosts 3-4 giveaways a month in different communities throughout the Inland Empire. Stone says since COVID, they have given out over $2 million worth of food and goods to San Bernardino, Riverside and Los Angeles counties.

We’re just going to keep giving back as long as the people need it.
