5th Annual FW Cares for Kids Holiday Event

What a beautiful demonstration of what can happen when we collaborate together to serve our community!

Grace Church, FW Police, SKFR, Communities in Schools along with FWPS, local businesses, Soroptimist & churches combined efforts to collect toys, gift cards & money to provide a wonderful event for many families in our community.

This year approximately 300 volunteers worked many hours to organize toys, set up, clean up & run the event.

The families started off with hot cocoa & then entered several holiday stations ending with photos with Santa. The parents were then assigned a personal shopper where they could “shop” from a large variety of toys. After selecting the gifts, they were able to wrap them. Meanwhile, the children were enjoying crafts & other activities in the room next door!

236 families attended which means 859 children had a better holiday! There was a whole lot of Christmas cheer & a holly, jolly time was had by all!
