Thank you to everyone that came out to our Grand Opening Event, Reconstructing Hope. We took in a lot of presents for Christmas that have helped make so many children happy. We also took in a lot of donations to help children when they are placed into foster care. Our Foster Closet provides these children with hope and dignity by providing them with clothes, shoes, and other items that they need.
Our next event will be January 4th at the Closest, starting at 9:00 am to help sort all of the donations that we received as a result of Reconstructing Hope. This event has introduced us to the community and has raised awareness that we are very grateful for. We have had an outpouring of support from our fantastic community! As a result of this outpouring of support, we will be looking for volunteers to help on the 4th to prepare us to help so many families 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
Thank you again for all of your support and a special thank you to our sponsors. We wouldn't have been able to do this without these great local businesses who have donated labor and materials to get our closet ready.
