The Children’s Assistance Fund is working hard to recognize the Senior’s of our judicial district who will be graduating from high school while in foster care. Statistics show only 30% of youth who spend time in the foster care system graduate from high school and only 11% go on to college. Our goal is to celebrate these youth who have worked hard and will obtain their diploma. The nonprofit will be sponsoring a celebration of these youth and will be giving them gift cards to help with expenses as they age out of the system. If you would like to make a tax deductible gift to this program, you may give through the website on the “donate” page or by mailing a check to CVGALA, PO Box 294, Denver, NC 28037.
