Disaster One is wholeheartedly committed to their mission because, as our president Ras Fenger eloquently stated, “An early investment in these young club members will pay long-term dividends, not just for the club members but also for our community.”

Funds raised from Chips for Children will help the Clubs sustain their afterschool and summer programs’ focus on academic success and character development while instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, and belonging in each club member.
