The executive spoke about what it means to receive such generous gifts that will surely make Christmas extra special for these kids.

” I am standing with the people of C.A.R.E. project. They came out and donated a bunch of toys to our kids. Here at the Blair Foundation, we help kids that have experienced a lot of trauma, that have been pulled out of their homes and we place them in safe homes. Where they get to work through that trauma, surround them with support like therapy and case management, and anything else they might need. It’s important that we get groups like this involved with our organization so that we can provide these kids with happy holidays and welcome gifts, things like that. We really appreciate the support.”
