Care For The Children will provide all materials and labor for the service.  As the City does not pay Care For The Children for this service, Care For The Children will be requesting voluntary donations from residents after the work is completedAll donations are strictly voluntary.

In this particular effort, it will allocate a percentage of the proceeds to support the local charity, Mission Viejo Community Foundation.
