Shopping fun for Shawn to join his friends at the outlet mall

Posted Feb 8, 2024
Shawn will be joining his peers on a field trip, and they will be visiting an outlet mall. Shawn doesn't have any money saved to shop and would love to be able to browse and pick out some things at Bass Pro. He hopes to find some fishing gear and a new T-shirt. He is so excited about fishing this Spring with his new friend from school. This will allow Shawn to have a great time on his field trip and help him feel special.

Shawn is 17 years old and lives in NC

Shawn is a wonderful young man who struggles with the lasting effects of abuse and neglect. He has many special needs and requires a high level of care and attention. He likes being part of the family and likes working on fixing things. Shawn likes to eat Chick-fil-A and listen to music. Shawn loves helping people and wants to be a teacher someday.

"Holly, Shawn absolutely had a blast on his field trip yesterday! He said he didn’t know shopping could be so much fun!! He had a blast and was excited all week over the anticipation of going. He came back with his lunchbox full of tackle- we are not sure why it was in his lunchbox but he was so proud to show everyone what he bought. Thank you for bringing him so much happiness- he truly felt so special, happy, and loved! "
