There are, on average, 2,000 children in foster care in Miami-Dade County, with more than 150 coming into foster care each month. Many of these children go to group homes, where normal activities such as birthday parties no longer happen. Celebrations4Kids hopes to provide a solution. Teens from pre-selected group homes will enjoy a party complete with pizza, cake, ice cream, balloons, donated entertainment and a duffel bag to call their own. Duffels4Kids will also provide extra incentives/gifts for the teenagers in the group home who are improving academically.
