The items below are our Fundraising Events. They are conducted here on our website. Big events out in public have high costs and bulky logistical needs. We put all donations directly to the need and not to bulky, costly endeavors. **Please Be Aware. Although we would like to, at this time we do not take any salaries here at Straight Ahead Outreach and your Donations are Tax Deductible under the full extent of the IRS 501c3 Code. 100% of your donations go to further our work and improve the lives of others as we believe that those we help, those in need come first. We Thank You from our souls in advance.
