Devereux Arizona Foster Families Celebrate the Holidays!
Thanks to a generous grant from The Charro Foundation, each Phoenix area Devereux foster child received an embroidered fleece blanket after viewing the movie with their families. In addition, the Delightful Quilters group, the Sundown Quilters group, and Half Price Books Camelback allowed every child to pick their own handquilted Christmas stocking and books to add to their libraries.
Tucson foster kids had their choice of numerous activities plus the chance to sit on Santa’s lap and receive a goodie bag filled with toys and candy generously donated from individuals and local businesses. The Tucson event also included a DJ, catered Mexican food, lots of sweet treats and a visit from the Border Patrol agents who also joined in the fun and practiced their "fishing skills" next to the kids. The "Merry Fishmas" game tested coordination skills as kids and adults fished for candy canes with a fishing pole and a candy cane as a hook. From Phoenix to Tucson, there were lots of smiles on the faces of Devereux Arizona foster families at this year's holiday celebrations. A good time was had by all!
