Community Comes Together for Foster Family Spring Celebration
5th of April 2021
Thanks to some incredible folks in the community, we were able to host a springtime celebration for Trinity Youth Services’ foster families. Staff and volunteers set up a drive-thru experience for each family to pick up Easter baskets, snacks, crafts and other activities.
Supporter, Erica Fernandez, worked with small businesses to gather Easter baskets and volunteers for the drive-thru, which was held at our Rancho Cucamonga foster care office. Erica’s son donned an Easter Bunny suit and greeted the children and families.
The Children’s Foundation of America provided funds to cover supplies and worked with Claremont Toyota for additional baskets, which were distributed to Trinity families who could not attend the event.
Families were invited to bring the whole family! This has been a particularly challenging year and donors wanted everyone to feel included and celebrated for their support of foster youth. Non-fostered siblings also got an Easter basket to participate in the fun and Mariya Chen from Balsa Circle Party Supplies donated beautiful silk flower arrangements for resource parents and foster teens.
Thank you to all our families who joined us for this special springtime celebration. And thank you to all of our amazing donors and supporters for making this incredible day happen! Wishing everyone a wonderful spring with much health and happiness.
