Foster Kids Enjoy Day of Fun

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

Kids in the foster care system were treated to a wonderful day of fun this past weekend.

For the third year in a row, Foster Family Fun Day gave children the chance to forget about their worries and just play.

Presented by Arizona Helping Hands, a nonprofit that helps foster families provide a safe and secure home for kids in the foster care system, this event was much-appreciated for young kids in the Department of Child Safety system. AHH programs give these children happy experiences and much-needed donations to make their lives a little bit brighter.

Kids and families gathered at the Harley-Davidson of Scottsdale for a memorable afternoon of free fun. Last year, AHH gave nearly 3,000 beds and cribs to families with foster kids throughout the state. Their donations include clothing, diapers and special birthday packages.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
