We had 280 backpacks donated from our island's community members, organizations, businesses, and church members for our event. We gave out 236 backpacks to foster families, 2 shelters, CPS social workers delivering backpacks to foster kids, relatives taking in children, Oasis clients, and a few very needy families. We had 105 school age foster children attend the event plus all their family members: approximately 300 people coming through our doors. We had a great group of volunteers serving the foster children backpacks, supplies, essentials, clothes, shoes, and a gym full of activities.
Our goal was to bless the foster community abundantly as Christ blesses us abundantly as His children. A big thank you to all involved in helping this day be a happy day for a child.
