Last weekend, Camp Connect took a group of siblings separated in foster care on a day filled with holiday festivities!
Their day began by attending the Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas play at The Old Globe, a first for many. After the play, the Grinch joined the siblings for a holiday party, where they had dinner, treats, and participated in a gift exchange. Youth were excited to open gifts together with their siblings, as they may not have had the opportunity to do so otherwise. Thanks to the generosity from @fbisdcaaa and Hugimals, each youth received a weighted stuffed animal to comfort and remind them of this special day.
After opening gifts, a friendly game of musical chairs brought youth, volunteers, and staff together. Siblings left with lasting memories of this special day, looking forward to the next time they’ll be reunited.
A special thank you to our longtime supporter, ICW Group, for being the presenting sponsor of this event. Without their generous support and without our volunteers, events like this would not be possible. We are grateful to all those who gave their time to make this event one to remember!
