Back-to-School at Christ the Good Shepherd (CTGS)
Christ The Good Shepherd (CTGS) is an American Coptic Orthodox Church that works for Christ, with Christ, in Christ, and through Christ. CTGS believes in opening their doors, lives, and hearts to those in need. This exemplifies the Greek word, known as ‘Koinonia’ which refers to the fullness of fellowship. With Aiden Whisper’s generosity, CTGS was able to hold a back-to-school event to serve the neighboring communities. Many families in Long Beach rely on donations and support for their livelihood, as the majority live below the poverty level in single-income households. Aiden Whisper partnered with CTGS to tend to those who have been wounded in life. The students’ bright smiles shined light on this kind act of service. Now they are equipped with backpacks, supplies, and necessities for a successful school year ahead!
Feeding families started with the mission to deliver hope and encouragement to families who lost their jobs and are struggling amid COVID. While delivering these groceries and encouragement, our eyes were opened to others who needed encouragement and hope as well. Aiden Whisper saw the struggling homeless community in San Diego and the struggle with food. We handmade bags of packed lunches and snacks for the homeless. We were able to hand out 40 bags total in just under 30 minutes. Aiden Whisper is grateful to be able to continue to find ways to spread hope and encouragement.
NEGUs mission is to encourage children to Never Ever Give Up their fight with cancer. With the help of US Alliance Group, we successfully stuffed over 200 JoyJars. It was a blessing to see everyone come together and work to stuff toys and hope into these JoyJars. Thank you, US Alliance Group, for helping us spread generosity and hope!
Vera Sanctuary at NEGU
What an incredible day combining two great organizations that we support. We love coming alongside the women from Vera's Sanctuary and serving with them at NEGU. Together, we were able to stuff over 200 JoyJars for children fighting cancer. Thank you, Vera's Sanctuary, for your generous donation of time!
Miles With Purpose
International Sanctuary's mission is to empower girls and women escaping human trafficking to embrace their true identity and worth. Between April 2nd and April 11th, International Sanctuary held a "Miles With Purpose" event to raise awareness and funding for human trafficked victims. Aiden Whisper collaborated with International Sanctuary by raising funds and a total of 918.61 miles. Human trafficking is a severe and prevalent problem here in Orange County, and we are thankful to have participated in this event.
USAG Serves at Laura’s House
Laura's House provides unduplicated domestic violence-related services to the 915,000 residents of Orange County, California, and beyond. Since COVID, Laura's House hotline has increased 65%, and their text chat line increased by 40%. We are grateful to have helped Laura's House sort through and organize clothes for their stores.
Laura’s House Serve with Vera’s Sanctuary
Aiden Whisper had the opportunity to take a group of young women from Vera's Sanctuary to serve at Laura's House. The women were beyond blessed by being able to give back. After we served together, we took the young women out to Crumbl to get cookies! While at Crumbl, one of the young women shared, "It was so nice to come and serve today. At the Sanctuary, we do a lot of therapy work on ourselves, and it was nice to get out of myself today and serve others."
Valentine's Day at Vera's Sanctuary
For Valentine's Day, Aiden Whisper and a group of local women did a small serve project by putting together self-care bags for the human trafficking victims at Vera's Sanctuary. Each bag had various items such as candles, homemade bath salts, shower steamers, lip masks, scrunchies, lotion, nail files, jewelry, handwritten notes, candies, face masks, and more. Each of the young women felt so loved and touched this Valentine's Day. Thank you to all who participated!

JoyJars & Masks
NEGU (Never Ever Give Up) works to give children fighting cancer hope and courage through JoyJars. Aiden Whisper felt blessed to be the first team back stuffing JoyJars at the NEGU warehouse since COVID. NEGU is currently on a mission to stuff 10,000 JoyJars by December 11th. These are scheduled to be delivered for the holiday season. COVID has made this mission more challenging. Aiden Whisper was able to contribute to helping NEGU reach this goal.
Feeding Families & School Supplies
Feeding Orange County families brought to our awareness the need for school supplies in the home. Due to COVID, some children can not attend school. Schools typically provide supplies such as ruled paper, pencils, markers, and spiral notebooks. Feeding Families has now added delivering school supplies along with groceries to these families.
Aiden Whisper is committed to bringing hope and encouragement.
As COVID-19 halted the world, many lost their jobs and were left unable to care for their families. Though we are not a food pantry, we are striving to deliver hope and encouragement. Aiden Whisper is hoping to collect the following items in order to share with others. These items can not be expired or open. Please deliver all donations to the US Alliance Group office lobby located at 29883 Santa Margarita Pkwy, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 92688.
If you or someone you know needs grocery delivery, please email us at email@example.com.
International Sanctuary welcomed back their PURPOSE Jewelry artisans. Aiden Whisper greeted the girls with balloons laden with handwritten, meaningful notes of encouragement and love.

Thank you Aiden Whisper supporters for submitting caring and loving notes to these sex trafficking survivors. Their hearts were overwhelmed with gratitude and joy. They were surprised people cared so much.
Shortly after the onset of COVID-19, families began losing employment. Around that time food banks began running low on supplies. Aiden Whisper jumped into feed discouraged families in dire need of help. We began gathering food and delivering it to these families. We are not a food bank, we are people trying to deliver hope and encouragement along with groceries.
If you would like to donate goods or know a family in need of some help, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This month, rather than congregating for a group project, we have the unique ability to give to those in our own homes and neighborhoods. Utilize the "Serve Ideas" list below to love on the people closest to you.
Share your photos and stories with us by tagging us on Instagram and Facebook! We want to see how your serve project is going!
We took full advantage of Spring Cleaning! We asked Aiden Whisper supporters to donate unwanted and gently used clothes, shoes, jewelry, leather goods, and more to Laura's House. All items were collected to support Laura's House Resale stores!
We are grateful for our donors and supporters. What is no longer special and valuable to us is very likely a treasure to others. Yet, another way to display GENEROSITY!
What an incredible day it was learning about the risks women, men, and their children take by fleeing their abuser. We are grateful to have released some weight from Laura's House resale store staff by sorting next week's shipment of clothing for their San Juan resale store.
The women of US Alliance Group wrote beautiful Valentine's Day notes to those currently staying in Laura's House.

Thank you USAG for your GENEROUS gift of time!
