It's Your BEST Shot
started a memorial scholarship in honor of a former friend and supporter of IYBS Charitable Foundation, Bonnie Gray.
It’s important to us to be clear about what we do. The following list details a majority of our ongoing initiatives that we need your participation in:
By the grace of God we will work to address, educate, coordinate, and provide aid and relief to people in need.
"I can't speak highly enough about this organization. Its founder, Eric Best, has a huge heart, a generous spirit, and an immense love for Christ. Those qualities are poured into each and every program the organization undertakes. From looking out for the senior citizens in the community to helping the youth achieve greater educational success, IYBS only aim is to HELP -- and it accomplishes that aim honestly, fairly, generously, and without distinction. It's been an honor to contribute to and work with this organization, and I'd recommend it without reservation."

A $1000 memorial grant setup for a female student at Conwell Egan Catholic School studying in a STEAM initiative(Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts or Math).
“I'm an eighth grader and my family was displaced by a house fire and we lost everything. The school I go to has a uniform policy and we couldn't afford new uniforms. Going to school without a uniform was sad because I felt different. I want to thank your organization for supplying me and my siblings with new school uniforms. It felt good to be dressed like the rest of the students."

“I would like to thank your organization for thinking about me during the holiday season. I appreciate the holiday fruit basket."
Senior Citizen (2014)
We live in a fast-paced society, and sometimes we get so caught up in our own lives that we forget about people less fortunate than us. As an organization we want to show that people still lend a helping hand.
IYBS Charitable Foundation is having a fundraiser to support our "Senior Cool Down" initiative. Show your support by purchasing a bottle of Postum for $10 a bottle.
"I would like to thank you for the Thanksgivng food basket and may GOD bless you for helping others in need."

“I appreciate what you're doing, thank you!!!!! God Bless you and your ministry."
“It's Your BEST Shot, I want to thank you for being there for my daughter and her family. When other groups turned them away you stepped in. God Bless your organization."
"I received a brand new air conditioner from IYBS. I made a call and received a response within 2 hours. The only questions were your name, address, and if you needed it to be installed, and who referred you. I had just got out the hospital and to hear they were giving me an air conditioner to help out with my breathing was a huge relief. I pray the Lord continues to bless the company to grow bigger so they're able to expand and help more people. I can't thank them enough. To work a full time job and get off to go help other is amazing. They have fundraisers to help get what they need to help out others. Please go to their website and see all the wonderful things this organization is doing to help the seniors and people in need. Again thanks Eric Best. May God continue to bless IYBS and all your families for what you do. Thank you, Pam Walker."
IYBS had a Back To School Drive, we provided more than 100 children with book bags, school supplies, and gift cards to purchase school uniforms in the Camden, Glassboro and Trenton, NJ areas.
"Thank you very much for caring. You have impacted the children of Camden in a great way. My parent and student truly appreciate what was done for them. 2 Corinthians 9:13-14 'Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you.' May you continue to be a blessing. Thank you again."
