Each year we find more and more non profit organizations needing help during the holidays. The biggest void we found over the last years is the need for assistance with our disadvantaged youth. More now than ever there are brilliant kids in the adoption system who need our help. This help is not just holiday specific, but items needed year long, basic necessities for items or experiences each of us takes for granted.
This holiday season Foster Angels of Central Texas is proudly our recipient with a $5,500 donation!
Nearly every person I know is touched by adoption. I have many adopted family members. While raising our own kids, we were fortunate enough to provide safe havens for those in need. Myself, along with my loving team here at Furniture in the Raw and Cabinet Bed USA decided to adopt Foster Angels of Central Texas to be our 2019 recipient.
Foster Angels provides immediate assistance to foster children in the form of basic needs (clothing, food, beds, medical expenses, transportation, education) and life-enhancing experiences (birthday parties, camp, sports and the arts). Foster Angels Information Click and read about the wonderful work they do including volunteer opportunities.
Their philosophy is that foster children must be exposed to positive influences, activities and experiences that help them to flourish and reach their full potential. They help provide enriching experiences that will shape a child’s life and most of all, their future.
We are grateful to be a part of this opportunity to help. Central Texas has so many kids in need. Foster Angels has formed strategic alliances with Child Protective Services (CPS) which allows Foster Angels to obtain information regarding the various needs of our community’s foster children and fund these much needed requests.
So many helped contribute to this campaign. Raising $5500 in just under 4 weeks was a daily commitment by our team! Know that 100% of the money we collected will go directly to help.
With your help we WILL make a positive light in these kids. They all deserve loving families. They all deserve a chance. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Thank you, amazing neighbors! We were honored to present this check.
Wishing you a beautiful Holiday, full of Love knowing we make a difference.
The Greenlee Family and the entire FITR Team
