Background

My reason for selecting this project is because my mom works as a Family Support Specialist at Children’s, so I’m able to hear about what some of these teens go through. It really makes me want to take action, and to see teens get acknowledged more than they usually do for Christmas. ¬†There are many children and teens in the Foster Care and Child Welfare system through Children’s Hospital. Every year, many gifts pour in for young toddlers and children, but not nearly enough for teens. This project will focus on getting different gifts that are fit for teens in time for Christmas to bring joy to teens that are in tough situations. I hope to have this project be an annual drive through my church and other sources.
