When you give…we can give to those who need it the most!
Heart 2 Heart, a program of Kids & Families Together (K&FT), hosted a New Bikes & Furniture Gift~Away event on Friday, January 20, 2023. “With the generous donations from our community, we were able to provide 21 Ventura County foster, adoptive and kinship families with new bikes, new printer cabinets, folding tables, and other home décor,” said Jeni Futvoye, K&FT’s Community Resource Manager. The children in attendance were very excited to receive their bikes with one caregiver saying, “the child in my care now has a bike they can ride with their siblings!” K&FT is grateful for the support from individuals and ongoing partners who give so generously. “When our community gives, we can then give to those who need it the most!”said Jeni Futvoye.
