The Tommy Apostlos Fund (TAF) was established in 1988, in memory of Tommy Apostolos, a lifetime Roseville resident and a 30+year employee of Roseville Telephone Company. One of Tommy’s passions was helping children in need.
Originally, TAF was a cooperative between Surewest Communications (formerly Roseville Telephone Company), Roseville Police Association, and the Apostolos Family with a few support volunteers, and our first kids' shopping spree in 1988 had just 10 kids. Today we provide nearly 400 children each year with much needed clothing, coats, shoes and school supplies, including backpacks.
In fact, the TAF has been so successful that other communities are now starting to replicate our efforts to provide for the needs of the children in their own cities.
TAF is a California nonprofit organization that raises funds to purchase clothing for underprivileged Roseville-based school children. One hundred percent (100%) of the money raised goes directly to these purchase programs for children who are selected through the Roseville and Dry Creek School Districts. Teachers and staff within the school districts identify the children who come from underprivileged or low income families within the local community, and they are then offered the opportunity to shop with the TAF program.
