We are wrapping up our 2021 Christmas Program and are excited to tell you we were able to fill the Wish Lists for 1691 Foster Kids across the state this year. We could not have done this without so many donors, wrappers, and hundreds of volunteers who started wrapping October 19 and finished December 21. Thank you!
We have many events planned for 2022 and these include A KJP Bowling Fundraiser, Dueling Pianos Fundraiser, our Annual Golf Outing and our Annual Fall Gala Dinner! Keep your eyes open for more news as we finalize dates, locations and times.
The very beginnings of BFPM started even before 2002 when Jeanne started putting together "Birthdays in a Bag" to provide Birthday Parties for Foster Children. She worked out of her garage and her intentions were to make birthdays special since she herself never had a birthday party. This program continues today.
We have finished our 2021 Christmas Program and believe it or not we are already working on our 2022 Christmas Program (along with our other programs). We encourage our donors to shop the sales now for next year! Stores have a lot of merchandize to move and we would be so grateful if you move it to Big Family! Our goal for 2022 is to serve 2000 kids next year. You can help us achieve this. A new, updated Amazon Wish List will be available at the link below starting on December 28, 2021. Thank you for your support. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2CTGRUBTIIJED?ref_=wl_share
Big Family is supported every day by an amazing core volunteer team who understands our mission and gives their time and their hearts to support children. It is all about the kids and the kids are essential. The Core Team consists of Lori, Kathy, Judy M., Judy W., Judy C., Sharon and Dave. They are the backbone of Big Family. (yes, 3 Judy's!)
We are currently building a new website! It will be up soon and for now we hope you will continue to support Big Family and our mission.
