Kids & Families Together (K&FT) is a nonprofit that has been serving foster/resource, adoptive, kinship, and birth families throughout Ventura County since 2000. K&FT works with children who have experienced trauma, abuse, neglect, loss, and multiple placements. K&FT also works with caregivers who need specialized education, support, and strategies to help raise safe, healthy, nurtured children that thrive.
Kids & Families Together and Heart 2 Heart, will be holding our Spring Fling Gift~Away event on Saturday, April 3rd for the Ventura County foster/resource, kinship, adopted and birth families we serve in our programs. This annual event has always been a kick-off to Spring, a season of growth and renewal. Due to the ongoing pandemic, Spring Fling 2021 will once again be a contactless, drive-thru event featuring the Easter Bunny and a panoramic view of the ocean from the foothills of Ventura. We are grateful to Poinsettia Pavilion in Ventura for being our host this year and providing us with this location and the spectacular backdrop direct from Mother-Nature herself. Our goal for this event is to serve 150 children!
Children and families will be provided such items as: gift cards, springtime themed baskets, teen bags, toys, clothing and more! Despite the current situation, this will be a family event filled with music and fun! We encourage our families attending to wear their favorite springtime hats, perhaps even an “Eastern Bonnet”, or decorate their car with spring flowers.
We are grateful to our Spring Fling 2021 partners and event sponsors that come from all over Ventura County to support our families: The Gene Haas Foundation, James Storehouse, St. Jude’s Catholic Church-Loaves & Fishes, Newbury Park High School-Wings to Grow and our host Poinsettia Pavilion.
Volunteer opportunities are available both prior to the event, to help sort, organize and prepare, along with time slots for the day of the event.
