Chow Down at Dickey’s and Top it Off with Pinkberry for Children: November 10th

Chow Down and Top it Off for Children

More than 6,000 children in the Texas foster care system are legally free and waiting to adopted by a “Forever Family”.  These are children who have experienced the impact of abuse, neglect, and exploitation and whose biological families are no longer able to provide for their needs.  Many of these children have been waiting a long time, 5 years and longer, to be matched with a family who is trained and supported to help them overcome the challenges they have faced and to be the child’s Forever Family.  Can you imagine waiting for 5 years or more in a temporary family for your Mom and/or Dad to finally take you to your forever home?

While there is a consistent need for adult individuals, couples, and families to make adoption commitments to these children, not everyone is called to do so but ANYONE and EVERYONE, can become a HERO to these children and we are going to make it easy for you to do so. All DFW Metroplex Pinkberry and Select DFW Metroplex Dickey’s Barbecue Pit locations are hosting a fundraiser on Saturday, November 10th, 2012 from 3:00 PM to 8:00 PM to raise funds to support efforts to move these waiting Texas Children from their temporary foster care homes to their permanent Forever Families.
