425 Foster Youth Receive Spring Goodie Baskets
Thanks to the support of our business partners and volunteers, the Children’s Foundation of America provided 425 foster youth with Spring Goodie Baskets this year.
Volunteers from Anthesis and the community distributed all sorts of goodies donated by our business partners including Sysco Riverside, who donated hundreds of candy bars! Children in foster care, residential programs, at risk youth centers, and veterans homes for families were supported through this campaign.
This year, the Children’s Foundation of America was able to support five organizations with Spring Goodie Baskets including Trinity Youth Services, Upland Unified School District, Mt. Rubidoux Church Foster Resource Program, San Bernardino City Unified School District Equity & Targeted Student Achievement, and Liberty Village Beaumont.
From volunteering to donating, there are many ways to support children in need! Visit our Get Involved page to learn more.
