What a year for our kids

We blinked, and 2019 is almost over! It has been a rewarding year at Kids to Love, as we have celebrated our 15th year of changing the lives of foster children.

This month, of course, we are busy working in Santa’s north Alabama workshop to make Christmas merry for local foster children. I invite you to visit us at our Bridge Street storefront, across from Cinemark, where we can make your Christmas a little less hectic by wrapping gifts for your friends and family. Donations for wrapping is one of the ways we support our Christmas program.

As we reflect on the ways we have served our kids and our community this year, a few highlights come to mind:

  • KTECH, our workforce training initiative, shared a national stage with Ivanka Trump as she promoted workforce development. Additionally, KTECH expanded to add robotics and soldering classes. You can learn more, and even apply, by visiting www.goketch.org.
  • One of our Kids to Love college scholars, Sacred B. Huff, realized her dream of completing law school at George Washington University and passed the bar exam this fall.
  • Over the Edge–Huntsville, our premiere rappelling fundraiser, sold out as participants embraced their adventurous alter-egos and rappelled the Regions Center downtown.

And we cannot forget the meaningful moments that unfold daily at Davidson Farms, where our girls are thriving. Among their accomplishments are making the cheerleading squad and earning a driver’s license – opportunities other youth so often take for granted.

If you’ve followed Kids to Love for any length of time, you know we are already planning what’s next! Big things are coming in 2020 as we celebrate our Sweet 16. Stay tuned!
