For over 100 years, the all-volunteer Children’s Enrichment Committee has given to children with financial needs in Orange County, with our primary focus on those in foster care.
This year, in addition to the six Emily Akers Scholarships awarded to graduating high school seniors for use in colleges and trade schools, we gave grants to three current students to help them purchase supplies and books. We gave requested holiday presents to 110 foster children and included with each a gift card, a homemade blanket and hat. One child enjoyed 2 weeks in summer camp. Another got needed therapy utensils and dishes, as well as a stuffed animal to cherish. And two young adults received personalized memory boxes and gift cards in recognition of their aging out of the system.
Your generous tax-deductible donation will go directly to area children, making their days a little brighter, a little easier.
As always, we thank you for your support.
