For most children, the holiday season is a time of wonder and excitement. But for children in our care, this can be a very difficult time as they cope with uncertainty, trauma and healing.
We believe that “family helping family” is only natural, but we also recognize families may need some help and guidance. That’s why we are here! There are children who won’t be able to open presents and celebrate with their birth parents during the holiday season, so we help them enjoy the holidays each year by throwing a party complete with Santa, toys, food, games and more!
If you would like to help us provide this annual event, here are some ways you can provide support and ensure our kinship care children have a bright holiday:
- Make a monetary donation to assist us in purchasing toys and gift cards for our children and youth.
- Donate new toys, games, gift cards or crafts to be distributed at the party, as well as party supplies (paper goods, cups, food and soft drinks).
