From the smell of hot cocoa that wafts through the air to the shimmer of holiday lights that adorn front lawns, there’s no time quite as magical as the holidays. But for children in the foster care system who are away from everything they’ve ever known, the holidays can be stressful and lonely.
In order to ensure that the holidays are filled with light, love and hope for Austin-area foster children, Carrying Hope is planning a spectacular Hope for the Holidays High Tea for 50 foster youth at the historic Driskill Hotel in early December. This unforgettable afternoon will include a multicourse, delectable high tea; a visit from Santa Claus; and a Winter Wonderland Gift Shop where each child will be able to choose from toys including American Girl Dolls, large Lego sets, and gift cards to purchase their favorite items.
In order for this event to be a success, we need your help! From being an event sponsor to purchasing holiday gifts, Carrying Hope has four wonderful ways that you can help make the holidays merry and bright for children in foster care this holiday season!
