ABC15 has teamed up with The Valley Toyota Dealers to help organizations around the Valley who are Helping Kids Go Places!

Zuir's Circle is a small charity working to do big things.

For their efforts to Help Kids Go Places, Zuri's Circle received a $500 VISA gift card courtesy of The Valley Toyota Dealers to help further their efforts in our community.

Here's what they say about themselves:

"Zuri's Circle (My Beautiful Circle) began as a simple dream that grew into a reality as Co-Founder Zuri Muhammad had ideas of how we could help a classmate in her school that was struggling with basic needs. Later Zuri would draw a picture that would become the logo we use to this day, creating the foundation for Zuri's Circle.

Even though Zuri's family was already doing things to give back in the community before she was even born, Zuri transformed the very way that we would impact homeless and families moving forward. With limited funding, we began assisting homeless individuals providing them with water, hygiene, and food to help ease the struggles they were dealing with on the streets. As we began to see so much need not just for the homeless but for families our dedication to giving back, both on the streets and in the communities where we lived grew. We then started organizing in a way to help assist families that were struggling to bring to life our annual feed the community event.

Zuri's Circle became a 501c3 officially in 2014 giving us the opportunity to connect with other nonprofits in the community and the opportunity to grow to provide programs for youth. Zuris Circle is work is aimed at helping the homeless with their essential needs (water, food, and clothing), assisting families and elderly with furniture, everyday essentials, school supplies, uniforms, and food as needed, also by directing them to a database of other resources that can provide rent, medical, and dental assistance. Our goal is to provide empowerment for youth, teens, and adults through activities, programs, and interactive camps."
