For many children facing challenges, the holidays can be especially difficult. For the more than 21,500 foster children living away from their parents in Arizona, they can be a time of profound sadness.
So in order to lift their spirits and provide positive holiday memories, Hope & A Future hosts a Christmas Celebration for the foster children who have Royal Family Kids' Camp or Teen Reach Adventure Camp in Arizona. Since 2005, we have invited any and all children who’ve ever taken part in these programs, their foster families and their group homes. As you can imagine, this celebration has grown exponentially over the years, becoming a great reunion event for children and volunteers alike.
We provide a catered dinner for those in attendance, arts and crafts for the children, holiday desserts, and gifts for each child. The gifts include appropriate age-specific toys and new articles of clothing for each child.
Can you help? Here are three ways you can get involved:
- Volunteer: If you are you a community leader who can volunteer your time to help organize this holiday event, please contact us.
- Vendor Donations: We rely on the support of the community for donations to provide funding for the entire Christmas Celebration event, including the dinner, crafts and Zoo Lights pass. If you are vendor and would like to help provide these donations, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
