H4H reaches out to foster teens
The third annual Hands4Hope Youth Board ￼Spaghetti Feed Fundraiser held earlier this spring was a huge success, raising $3600 for Foster Family
￼and Adoption Services and other H4H Youth Board projects.
The Youth Board chose Foster Family Services after listening to speakers from two local agencies and feeling a connection with the struggles of teen foster children. The funds will be used to help foster children who are seniors in high school participate in memory making activities that are unique to seniors and for which most foster children cannot afford. Funds raised will help purchase senior photos, yearbooks as well as tickets to prom and senior class activities.
Hands4Hope would like to thank everyone who attended and supported this event. A special thanks goes out to table sponsors: Ethos Soccer, PKWH, El Dorado Community Foundation, Western Sign Co., College Alley Consulting, Arbor Ridge Apartments, Nature’s Variety and Coleen Johnson/Hope House. Thank you also to Bel Air Cameron Park for donating most of the food for the evening.
The event was loads of fun with entertainment from the Makeshift Wonder, a local teen band, a dessert auction and a great presentation from Foster Family and Adoption Services and the H4H youth leadership.
