About the event
For this Giving Tuesday, we are inviting the community to join us in wrapping our arms around those who have aged out of foster care! We hope to expand our supports for them in 2024, but we need your help! Our goal is to fill the gaps for these youth during an exciting, yet terrifying transition into adulthood.
In 2023 we have:
*celebrated 17 youth turning 18 with a birthday party including cake, decorations and presents
*provided an in person baby shower for an expectant mom
*provided new furnishings for youth moving into their first home
*held virtual baby showers by posting wishlists of 3 expectant moms
*furnished a dorm room for a college freshman
*provided Easter care packages for 18-21 youths
*provided a laser tag outing for the LINKS youth
*provided 14 graduation care packages to high school graduates
*provided 2 graduation care packages to college graduates
*provided essential clothing, toiletries and other tangible items for the dependant children of 3 aged out youth
As we expand our reach and connect with more county agencies, the needs will quickly increase. Your support will give these youth the respect and dignity they deserve as they explore their new found independence.
