Celebrate with us… through your generosity, we were able to serve over 500 area foster kids and students in need with a new backpack loaded with school supplies to start the year off right.  We had a great time as we hosted foster students for our Backpack Party, offering haircuts, loads of games and crafts, BINGO, tons of food, and tons of fun.
