Whether you donated goods or services, shared your financial treasure, or "just" spread the word about For The Seventh Generation, you are the reason that more than 500 metro-area foster children, families, and teens aging out of the foster care system received something they needed in 2013:
Seventy-seven foster children, teens, and families picked up essential items like clothing and furniture.
Seventy-five youngsters picked out presents, had presents picked out for them, and enjoyed snacks, games and holiday-themed festivities at the organization's 2013 Holiday Bazaar.
With the help of the local Rotary Clubs of Operation Warm, 150 children and teens in foster care received brand new winter coats.
More than fifty foster children who are permanent wards of the court received preliminary orthodontic care at the University of Detroit Mercy's School of Dentistry.
Four children were served by the Play It Forward music program, which is funded to provide instruments and lessons to a total of twelve foster youth.
The remainder of the children, teens, and families received a range of items and services including orthodontic care, Prom dresses and related services, and home-improvement services like roof repairs.
For The Seventh Generation is really just a conduit -- a "matchmaker" -- to make sure that your donations are placed with the foster children, families and teens who need them. Thank you all for providing so much for us to give!
