Our Hillsides Volunteer Network plans activities throughout the year for the children in foster care who live at Hillsides, a 104-year-old foster care charity. Please help us fund events for the kids!
Here are some of the upcoming 2017 events we need help funding:
In December, we throw a Christmas Eve party for the children at The Langham Huntington, Pasadena. The children are treated to a turkey dinner with all the trimmings, and Santa arrives with gifts for all the children. It is truly a magical night and a highlight of the year for the children.
Throughout the year, we also provide:
School pictures for the 85 children at the Hillsides Education Center. The total cost of pictures is $1,500.
An art endowment. Every year we sponsor the Art Program at Hillsides. $2000 covers art supplies, and a playwright workshop.
Bikes for the children. Each year we donate sturdy bikes for the children to ride around on campus. We are hoping to donate four bikes this year. Each bike costs $250.
We are grateful for any amount you are able to donate – every bit helps! We are also looking for volunteers to participate in the events with the children. If you are interested in donating your time, please contact Hillsides Community Resources Director Laura Kelso at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Together, we can create fun and memorable activities that will bring joy to these children’s lives!
