A Note from the Founder:
Being our inaugural Newsletter, I felt it only fitting that we begin by expressing our sincere “Gratitude” for your continued
support. We recognize that you, our donors, are the life blood of this organization. It is through your caring, commitment and
generosity that ensures the success of this program. You truly are Angels!
Looking back through the years I’ve watched this organization grow. Helping us to spread the word, you are making smiles happen and bringing joy into the lives of our local foster children. Witnessing the love that passes from our donors, showing a child they do matter, speaks volumes. Together we are able to impact the lives of so many of our local foster children.
Currently we are wrapping up our Hats Off to Grads Program, providing our foster children with the tools and necessities they need to set up for living independently and beginning their college life. Without the support of a family, we can always count on you to step in.
Together we are changing lives…one child at a time!
Never underestimate the difference you can make in the lives of others ~ Pablo
College Program-Hats off to Grads Program
In mid-June we kicked off our college program for 30+ college students from Macomb and Oakland counties.
This college program is an annual program that runs to mid July. Then collections are sorted/organized for a one-time distribution in time for the student to leave for college in August.
Sponsoring a student entails purchasing specific items that the college student would need to start their college year, it can vary from student to student. Each student fills out a wish list stating the items they will need from graphing calculators, bedding, mini refrigerators and microwaves to personal care items, laundry and cleaning supplies to storage bins.
Angels, like you, make this important program a success!!
