BackPack Beginnings’ mission is to “deliver child-centric services to feed, comfort and clothe children in need. By ensuring food and basic necessities are given directly to children in need, we make a positive and lasting impact on their health and well-being”. They can use Weekend Warehouse Volunteers, but we can donate items, their list is located here. While some of us already donate to other causes or food banks, we can still donate a can or two to BackPack Beginnings that is geared specifically towards young children. We will let you know when we start collecting for them. Thank you to Gabe for bringing this cause to our attention.

STAR TREK CONTINUES is a critically-acclaimed, award-winning, fan-produced webseries… the brainchild of long-time Star Trek: The Original Series fan — and producer, director, actor, voice-actor, musician — Vic Mignogna.
From “Where No Man Has Gone Before” to “Turnabout Intruder,” TOS chronicled the first four years (2265–2269) of James T. Kirk’s historic five-year mission before the series was prematurely cancelled. STAR TREK CONTINUES is proud to be part of Trek history, completing the final year (late 2269 – early 2270) of the original adventure.
STC shot in an 18,500-square-foot studio which housed the largest, most complete standing TOS sets in the world — including the bridge, corridors, turbolifts, quarters, sickbay, briefing/rec room, transporter room, Jefferies tube, engineering, auxiliary control, shuttlecraft, planet set, and much more — precisely constructed using the original Star Trek blueprints (see the interactive virtual tour above).
Vic and our team of talented film professionals raised the bar in the quality of stories and overall production on one of the most recognized, popular fan productions ever made.
