Lerner and Rowe Gives Back is part of a Nonprofit Organization dedicated to extensive community outreach programs. We believe it is our primary responsibility to advocate for and improve the lives of innocent children who live in poverty, cope with the effects of illness or disease, or otherwise need assistance. In addition, we serve various organizations in the hopes that our compassion touches the lives of the homeless, the hungry, the abused and sick, and even to our four-legged friends. We invite and encourage everyone to join our mission NOW in fulfilling the vision to give and help less fortunate members of our community.
Our Mission & Vision!!!
Our Mission, to make a difference in the lives of people in need by serving and giving back to our community.

The McKenna Youth Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization (EIN # 86-0758713) and a Arizona Qualifying Charitable Organization (QCO Code 20867)that was founded over 32 years ago by Tony Cerkvenik, Michael Damiani, Terry Dunn, and lots of friends. Our goal is simple: To help disadvantaged children in the Phoenix metropolitan area one child at a time. Every year, we sponsor events with the sole purpose of sustaining our annual holiday party held at Aunt Chilada's Restaurant for families in need. With the help of individuals and corporations alike, the McKenna Youth Foundation has been able to provide food, clothing, books, toys, household items, and bicycles to more then 3200 families and over 10,600 children.
In addition to the annual holiday party, the McKenna Youth Foundation has assisted numerous children by providing food and housing scholarships, sending kids to summer programs and camp, providing back to school clothing and assisting children with medical issues.
