The holiday season can be a difficult time for many, so Change 1 has created this celebration to provide a family atmosphere for the holidays and hopefully create joyful memories for kids in foster care. This year in addition to the Thanksgiving Celebration we will have an awards presentation to recognize youth in care, alumni, area nonprofits and community groups who are excelling in meeting the needs of Foster Care youth, along with a fun evening of music, raffle prizes, and much more!
We want youth in care and young adults formerly in care to know:
We invite you to be part of something truly special. By becoming a sponsor of our upcoming Thanksgiving event, you'll be joining hands with us in spreading warmth, joy, and gratitude.
Your support not only helps us create a memorable celebration but also strengthens our community bonds. Together, we can make this Thanksgiving unforgettable for all involved. Let's join forces in making a positive impact – your sponsorship will be a vital ingredient in our recipe for success. Thank you for considering this opportunity to share in the spirit of giving.
We would like for you to consider volunteering with our organization. We are currently recruiting volunteers of all ages, to serve meals, set up/clean up, host, and live entertainment, on the day of the event.
Thank you for considering volunteering at the 10th Annual Thanksgiving Celebration for foster care youth and alumni. This event would not be impossible without the generosity of volunteers.
Having a big sale, on-site celebrity, or other event? Be sure to announce it so everybody knows and gets excited about it.
This award recognizes a youth currently in foster care who has risen above life obstacles and challenges and has had a positive impact on others with whom he/she interacts. This individual takes initiative to secure resources in support of a flourishing future.
This award recognizes a young adult formerly in foster care who has overcome personal adversity and has had a positive turn around in their life. This young adult has made a significant impact on others and the community, and has given back to the foster care population.
