Thank You to our All Our Supporters
Thank you to everyone who made an effort to support our organization this year.
In addition to our Christmas Party, your donations are directly affecting other programs we have in place for foster children:
Focused events - From taking foster children to basketball and hocket games to holding bowling and ice cream outings, our organization helps provide fun activities for our local foster children.
Pack-it-Up program - We have provided hundreds of back-packs filled with school supplies to make sure our foster children in our local area are prepared with the right tools to be successful in school.
Helene Giordano Memorial Scholarship Program - We officially launched this program in 2012. We are pleased to announce that in September 2013 we awarded two scholarships this year to deserving students to support their continuing education. FKMV Scholarships start at $500 and go up to $2,500 per award. If you would like an application or due dates, please fill out our form and we will get back to you.
