This is our almost-annual fundraiser for the Arlington County Foster Care program
. Last year we raised almost $250 smack-a-roos.
Holidays are a time of sharing and family. Every year, the Arlington County Foster Care/Adoption Program offers a holiday celebration and gifts to children in foster care. We need your help in ensuring that these children have smiles on their faces during the holiday season.
Please join us for Happy Hour to to connect with your fellow FSC'ers; meet a foster parent; and learn a bit more about this important program.
We're excited to have an Arlington County staff member and a foster parent on hand, to provide a short presentation and answer questions you may have. And of course, there's plenty of time to chat, have a beverage, and get up to date with old and new acquaintances.
From the Foster Care Program: "There are times when children and their parents must live apart. During those times, a child needs a safe and nurturing environment until his or her parent can resume responsibility and custody or until an alternative permanent placement for the child is found. Youth in foster care need relationships with responsible adults intended to last a lifetime."
