Our Mission

The mission of our foundation is to improve the quality of life for children and families across the State of Arkansas with an emphasis on Batesville and Independence County.

For the upcoming year we will be providing financial assistance to the Children’s Advocacy Centers as well as other community enrichment organizations as they work to provide resources to disadvantaged persons and families in our area.

Organizations We Support

Community Enrichment Organization

To create a community where the homeless, hungry, and impoverished are acknowledged and supported by a united community. Our community will be impacted by positive change through caring and providing for our neighbors to achieve safe shelter, access to public transportation, education, and career and soft skills training.

Children’s Advocacy Centers of Arkansas

The purpose of the not-for-profit Children’s Advocacy Centers of Arkansas (CACA) is to promote, assist, and support the development, growth, and continuation of CACs in the State of Arkansas so that every child victim has access to the services of a CAC. All services provided by the membership of Children’s Advocacy Centers of Arkansas are provided at no cost to child victims of abuse or their families.


Recycled Percussion Performs a Benefit Concert at Batesville's Community Center

Recycled Percussion is a New Hampshire-based band that mixes their gritty assault on buckets, power tools or anything else they can get their sticks on.
We auctioned off several items before the event started to also raise money for the foundation.
Their junk rock music became a national phenomenon week after week during their smash hit performances on America’s Got Talent in 2009.
The show brought in a huge crowd to the Batesville Community Center.
This is a view of the school buses from area schools coming to the event that was put on for the area school kids. Then there was an evening event for the community in general.
This is “Recycled Percussion” that performed at the concert at the community center in Batesville. Mark flew to Las Vegas to fly them back here for the event.
