There are many way to give back to our community and many different organizations that need your help. Street Teens, Shine Family Foundation, Clean the World and Communities in Schools are but only a handful of amazing organizations that Circles Magazine wants to share with you.

Shine Family Foundation was founded by FOX5 Meteorologist Les Krifaton and his wife Rowena in 2010 to help the families of our local military who are deployed and our veterans. SFF was granted 501(c)(3) tax deductible status in January 2011. Since then the non-profit has purchased and delivered everything from school supplies, beds, furniture, pallets of water and juice, Christmas gifts and food.

You can learn more about them at, on Facebook, or at Twitter @shinefoundation.
