11th Annual Backpack Gift~Away Event!

Kids & Families Together (K&FT) along with Heart 2 Heart will be hosting the 11th Annual Backpack Gift~Away Drive-Thru event on Saturday, August 14th, in Ventura for foster/resource, kinship, adopted and bio-families currently working in programs with Kids & Families Together. This will be a fun family event that will provide backpacks filled with age appropriate school supplies, along with other donations for the caregivers. As families leave the event, a box lunch will be provided allowing them the opportunity to enjoy a nice afternoon picnic together at the beach or a local park.

This year’s theme is Pirates & Mermaids! As with prior drive-thru events, dressing in costume or decorating your vehicle is strongly encouraged. Our goal is to serve 150 children, who are currently “in care” at this event and send them back to school with confidence and the supplies they need for a fun and successful school year!

There are many ways to help support this event through financial giving, donations of school supplies or becoming a volunteer!
