The Mission of Operation Community Stimulus is to be a platform to bring together BUSINESSES-NON PROFITS-COMMUNITY LEADERS-CITIZENS to collaborate in the community. This is an opportunity to support various programs within our community from arts to various community causes. Art is the main emphasis for the program. Working closely with other non-profits we will collaborate in various ways to meet their needs. Donations are always welcome. Please visit our online location for the most updated list of donations which are available to our supporters. The art work are gifts for those who chose to support a designated program. The art gifts are done by students. It is our belief that the kids arts need to be appreciated. The tables you see here are done by students from Irvine.
