For many children facing challenges, the holidays can be especially difficult. For the over 10,000 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.
The Christmas Celebration is held at the Phoenix First Assembly, which includes an incredible performance celebrating the Celebration of Christmas. Come step into a world of wonder as you are surrounded by: A winter wonderland, flying angels, live animals, signing dancing and so much more!! We provide a catered dinner for those in attendance, entertainment, 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.
