CURO in the Community
Partnering with Together We Rise
to create a better tomorrow
for local foster youth.
Our first community giving event for Together We Rise was a success! On Friday, May 11th, friends and clients of CURO came out to help us decorate special duffel bags for local children displaced from their homes and entering into foster care.
We gave it our best artistic effort and stenciled the duffels with dinos, butterflies, rainbows, rocket ships, and more and added words of inspiration and letters of encouragement. Once decorated, we stuffed them full of books, blankets, teddy bears, toothbrushes and toys. It is our hope that the children that receive these bags find comfort in the contents and in the face of their uncertain future.
We delivered the SWEET CASES of joy to Children's Home Society of New Jersey, a local family services organization, to be given to children in need, between the ages of 0 and 11 years old. Although weren't able to see their faces when they received the gifts, our hearts are warmed with the thought of each of them opening the bags in their new homes, finding all the treasures inside and realizing just how much they matter.
We are so grateful to everyone that participated, painted, stuffed or sent items to be included in the bags. We plan to do this again later in the year. so if you would still like to contribute to our donation drive, please contact us!
