Knock Knock Angels is 501(c)3 non-profit organization that started with one kind gesture. Assisting two strangers that were in need. “Knock-knock.” Those were the words spoken to two unsuspecting college students at a department store as they were handed two crisp $20 bills. Overhearing the two young women feeling sad about what they could not afford, a kind stranger decided to ease their woes by giving them enough money to purchase the items they wanted. Her only request of them was to repeat the generosity to someone else at some later time. The kind stranger was Knock Knock Angels Founder, Vickie Lobo, and with that simple act of giving, the vision for what is now a year-round philanthropic organization was conceived.
Knock Knock Angels seeks donations to help families and individuals in our community. Our goal is to help those facing challenges help themselves. We give them hope and purpose: changing one life at a time. We provide single parents with new furnishings, make home improvements, and present them with donated gifts which in turn help their children thrive. We hold the hands of seniors who’ve been neglected or abused and provide them with clean, warm, safe environments to live in. Veterans receive assistance from us in the form of home retrofitting to meet the physical or emotional handicaps they may have developed while serving our country. We not only strive to meet a family’s essential needs but work to help them envision a brighter future.
