Children taken from bad home situations and put into Foster Care have often been separated from their siblings during the holidays. Annually, the FRIENDS have partnered to put together a Christmas time Sibling Event for these keiki longing to see each other.
It’s a fun day with “reunions” and a special “shopping” event. The FRIENDS was able to provide many small items from grant funding and our local community to stage a “Free General Store”, from which each child could “shop” for a present for their sibling. The packages were wrapped and tagged with “to and from” labels and given back to the “shopper”. In addition, the best part was when all the gathered keiki were able to give their selected gift to their sibling. What a great treat for the kids… and a heart-warming event for our hard-working volunteers!
