Miracle for Kids, an Irvine-based organization, is dedicated to improving the lives of children stricken with life-threatening illnesses. The organization specifically focuses on supporting children and their families with financial issues during the treatment period, and providing funds to entities that support or conduct research focused on eradicating childhood diseases, and it also serves as an advocate for families in need who are combating terminal diseases.

For more than 45 years, Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) has been steadfastly committed to providing the highest quality medical care to children. Affiliated with the University of California, Irvine, their regional pediatric healthcare network includes a state-of-the-art 238-bed main hospital facility in the City of Orange, and a hospital-within-a-hospital in Mission Viejo. CHOC also offers many primary and specialty care clinics, over 100 additional programs and services, a pediatric residency program, and four centers of excellence.

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International (JDRF) is the worldwide leader in funding research to cure type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly and lasts a lifetime. JDRF is the leading founder and advocate of type 1 diabetes science.

Empower families fighting childhood cancers and related life-threatening conditions with quality of life care, fierce foods, whole-body wellness resources, education, and research. We believe that true health starts when families are empowered to be active partners in their child's healing. 

Nearly 400,000 residents of Orange County do not know where their next meal is going to come from. Waste Not OC's mission is to meet the nutritional needs of our community and protect the environment by facilitating the donation and distribution of wholesome surplus food, with a vision to end hunger in Orange County.
