It may have been hot and humid but this stop truly was special due to the volunteers and followers of Together We Rise that came out and volunteered their time to help the foster youth in their community. One girl in particular, a former foster youth herself, came to help us throughout the event. Not only did she touch our hearts by just showing up but by actually knowing the foster youth participating in the event from sharing group homes and foster parents.
We are also grateful for our loyal volunteers who show up whenever we come to their neck of the woods. We had other volunteers who lived within 2 hours of the event and still decided they wouldn’t miss it and came out to help!
This stop was a heartfelt and humbling experience. Just because these children are in foster care, they are not alone and their current situation does not dictate their future.
