Kelrik Cares | ​Help us support Others
Giving back is a vital part of a full and rewarding life. Kelrik Productions is excited to partner with some amazing volunteer groups and non-profit organizations that do so much to help the communities that all of us are a part of. As successful members of the community, we have a responsibility to help those that are less fortunate and contribute to the common good. Two seasons ago Kelrik adopted the ​Kelrik Cares Program​, selecting a different organization for each production and raised money and awareness for their causes. In past years, cast members have collected thousands of dollars with the help of our ​amazing ​guest volunteer organizations such as Woods Humane Society, Big Brothers, Casa and GALA. Giving back to the community brings a pleasant feeling of connectedness and the satisfaction of doing our part to make the world a better place. Those less fortunate than we are can ​appreciate our help ​all year round.​Give what you can regularly to the charities that make a difference to your local and national community. You may be surprised at the benefits you reap!

The Mission of Jack's Helping Hand, Inc. is to establish and provide community programs that enable and empower families, professionals, and the broader community to meet the unique unmet physical, mental, and medical needs of special children and young adults who have not attained the age of twenty-one. Jack’s Helping Hand (JHH) is local to San Luis Obispo County and is a nonprofit organization that has helped thousands of children with medical and special needs for their families whose resources have been exhausted. The JHH Financial Assistance Program provides a range of services, therapies, medical products, transportation and lodging costs to qualified children with special needs in our county. We provide prosthetic limbs, specialized treatments, robotic equipment, sophisticated eyeglasses, state-of- the-art hearing devices, and much more. These are children whose families cannot otherwise afford them, who are underinsured and/or who have exhausted other community resources. Our programs include water therapy, equine therapy, support groups, and toy lending libraries, but the heart and soul of the program is to help the needs of the medically fragile in our city. Jack’s Assistance Program was able to meet the needs of 2,208 family members in our community this year. We also fulfilled requests for assistance with equipment, medical treatment, housing and transportation. In the last ten years we have provided more than $1,700,000 in assistance to children and their families in San Luis Obispo County.
