Thanks to the generous donations from our community, we were able to host the 2016 Annual Adoption Celebration in the Mat-Su! The children celebrating their adoptions got to pick from holiday quilts donated by Valley Quilters' Guild, afghans made by the Chugiak-Eagle River Senior Center Knit Witz or fleece blankets tied by the Mat-Su Grandparents Support Group, and they also received special pillows donated by Pillows for Kids.
The Office of Children’s Services arranged for the party room and arcade cards, ACRF provided pizza and drinks and Catholic Social Services brought a lovely cake. In addition, the Extreme Fun Center gave us a discount on the party rooms and our wonderful staff and volunteers made sure everyone had a fabulous time!
