What a party! We couldn’t have done it without great help
Thanks so much to First Financial Bank and Roddell McCullough for making it possible for us to have a holiday party for the kids in our custody. As increasing demand continues to put financial pressure on our system, we don’t usually have time or money for extras. So the support from Mr. McCullough and the bank made it possible for us to celebrate with our kids and give them some small gifts.
We had face painters, circus performers on stilts, Bengals, a magician, photographers, great food from 5 Star Meal Prep, team gear from the Marvin Lewis Community Fund, decorations from Balloons and Beyond, fun music from Napoleon Maddox. Lisa Shannon painted a lot of faces. Jetabout Travel’s financial donation helped us make the party extra nice.
Volunteers from Saatchi and Saatchi helped and brought nice blankets to give away. Members of Delta Gamma Si helped as well, and members of Delta Gamma Nu brought blankets, hats and gloves.
The kids at this party are in our permanent custody. That means they’re waiting for families or possibly planning to age out of the foster care system and transition to living on their own. So it was good to see them having so much fun.
