Loggins Fans 4 Unity

Posted on December 4, 2014

If You Believe . . .

Since December 2000, Kenny's fans and friends have united to honor him during the holiday season - by making a donation to the Unity Shoppe's annual Unity Telethon - which Kenny helped to establish in 1987.

This annual effort, organized by LogginsFans4Unity, helps to make the holidays a whole lot brighter for the very special families of Unity - who might otherwise not have food, clothing and toys for their children during the holiday season.

About Unity Shoppe

The Unity Shoppe is funded completely by private, non-government aid, to help families going through financial difficulties. Set up in a "real-store" fashion, Unity Shoppe allows families in need to "shop" for new items they may otherwise have to go without. And because Unity helps to supplement their most basic necessitites, families are able to continue working to pay their rent and utilities.

The program helps families maintain their sense of dignity by not having to ask for public assistance, or be put on welfare. In return, the families of Unity, including the children, volunteer their time to help give back to other families services by the Unity Shoppe.

Kenny Loggins was entertaining in local clubs gathering toys for needy children when he met Barbara Tellefson. After learning about the "Unity" concept he agreed that parents should have the joy of shopping for the gifts they want for their children. In order to help even more families, Kenny joined forces with the Unity Shoppe so enough merchandise could be collected for everyone who needed it! And the Unity Telethon was born!
