FOSTERING COMMUNITY BLOG
Check out our recap video of last month’s Back to School event! This was a pivotal first for Houston Angels, but a beautiful extension of all of the good being spread by our National Angels family.
Thank you to Main Event Entertainment in Stafford for hosting our Back to School Bash. Not only did Main Event donate a free hour of bowling and arcade games for every single child to enjoy, they also donated to us a large private party room so that we could set up all of our things, eat and chat together.
Thank you to UBS (Downtown and River Oaks offices) our corporate partner who donated tons of backpacks completely filled with school supplies for all 54 children with Circles of Care foster agency.
Thank you to Sole Loved, our amazing partner who provided every child with a brand new pair of shoes to go back to school in style. You guys - these shoes were amazing. The looks on these kids’ faces as they tried on shoes with glitter, light ups, super heroes and tv characters, or a cool new pair of Nikes - and even got to choose their favorite from a few options - we will never forget. It was an absolute joy to work with such a hardworking, giving organization.
Thank you to the kind staff at Circles of Care who worked with us these past few months as we prepared to host these amazing families and children, and even joined us at the event. We can’t wait to continue working with you all.
And thank you to our two volunteer photographers, John LaRose and Mayra Rincon, who bounced around the entire event to capture the day for us.
We believe all children, no matter their start in life, should be empowered to pursue their dreams and reach their fullest potential. We believe in the power of love, community and positive role models to speak truth and life into kids in foster care. We believe in hope for every child to find healing, so that they can become who they were meant to be and share their gifts with the world.
