Foster Kids Get A Boost From Yakima’s Junior League — Dave’s Diary
The Junior League motto is “Women Building Better Communities,” and nothing demonstrates that better than the May 1 Open House in honor of their Grand Opening of IDentity. IDentity is a clothing store exclusively for foster children. The store, sponsored by Junior League of Yakima, will be stocked with new or like-new items that will be available to the kids at no cost.
The Junior League of Yakima’s provisional class of 2014 has partnered with Voices of Children to make this dream a reality for foster children in our community. Voices for Children Foundation, a nonprofit organization started here, is dedicated to improving the life experiences of the roughly 700 foster children currently in the dependency system.
The May 1 event includes a ribbon cutting ceremony at 3, and festivities until 7. If you would like more information contact Kari Cosper at 833-3661.
