GMGB HELPS MISSION
Our mission is to support and encourage inner city kids to turn their dreams into reality through our educational and nutritional programs. We believe that it is vitally important for our children to understand that furthering their education leads to success. Every kid deserves a good start and preparation is key. Our goal is to provide school supplies and backpacks at the beginning of the school year, offer after school homework support in a safe, caring environment, serve nutritious foods for underprivileged kids and their families, unite kids together with read-a-thons and sports activities, encourage positive attitudes, change negative mindsets and break self-destructive cycles. Our team leaders, community leaders, professional coaches and athletes work together in teaching our kids the essential life principles of integrity, discipline, teamwork, anti-bullying, setting goals, acquiring strong work ethics, using positive communication skills, and establishing moral values.
GMGB PRESIDENT PERCY MILLER

GMGB LITERACY & EDUCATION PROGRAM
In a culture that has largely turned children off to reading, our commitment to improving literacy through reading aloud, book clubs, poetry writing classes and more, fosters appreciation for the written word and the power of the imagination!
GMGB HEALTH & ATHLETICS PROGRAM
As part of promoting healthy eating habits among our youth, this program is designed to help change eating habits that may reduce the risks for diabetes, obesity and other short-term and chronic health problems in our community.
Our organized sports leagues and activities (basketball, flag football, and soccer) teach the values of teamwork and good sportsmanship, providing engaging, positive alternatives to watching television, hanging out on the street, taking drugs, joining a gang and other negative, risky activities.
GMGB FOOD, SHELTER & CLOTHING PROGRAM
This program welcomes our youth, families and community members to benefit from and support community events and civic engagement opportunities throughout the year. We help provide food, clothing and shelter for underprivileged members of the communities we serve.
The GMGB HELPS Foundation provides free programs to under-served youth and empower them to take ownership of the quality and direction of their lives through programs in education, sports, and well-being and are inspired to make a meaningful difference in their community and the world. Your investment will help transform lives of thousands of youth and families every day.
