A note from our executive director.
I hope this message finds you well and ready for the holiday season! At our recent team meeting I couldn't help but feel such deep gratitude for all the ways we're helping children & families in our community. So today, I'd love to tell you about a special moment from a recent Love Box leader's visit with a family. It's a beautiful example of the care and dedication our volunteers give each and every family we support.
During this monthly meetup our Love Box leader Kathy arrived at her foster family’s home with a wonderful spread - chicken white bean chili, salad, and a delightful pumpkin cake. As the foster parents tended to their growing family, the age old challenge presented itself -who’s going to hold this sweet newborn so the parents can enjoy the meal? Well naturally our Love Box leader jumped in and immediately volunteered. Who doesn’t love holding a cute new baby?! This very simple gesture not only allowed for a fostering family to enjoy a meal together, but a rare moment of calm in a normally very busy weeknight. Kathy shared that it was truly magical. To sit back and watch the children enjoy not only the meal, but the uninterrupted time together at the table.
Your unwavering support allows us to create these invaluable connections and provide normalcy to our families. Every gesture, every meal, every “Love Box” strengthens our resolve to foster a supportive environment for these deserving families. When our fostering community feels supported, they can continue the very important work of fostering.
Thank you for standing by us and making these moments of compassion and support possible. Your generosity continues to be the cornerstone of hope and empowerment for families within our community.
