“This is our opportunity as the Kinship organization to give back to our community, give back to our caregivers,” Brown said. “We realize it takes a lot to do what they do, and we realize that some of the kids have not had a great summer in the eyes of some caregivers, so this opportunity is afforded to them to come out to have food, fun, and games, get clothing, get school supplies, and non-perishable food items.”
The event took place Friday, July 22 from 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Orange Grove Community Center.
In order to take part in the program, the criteria is to be a sole caregiver for a child up to age 18. If you think you qualify, you can call the Catholic Charities Kinship Navigator Program at 769-218-8436 for an intake assessment.
