A Table and Chairs for Clarissa and her daughter who are eating on the floor

Posted Dec 23, 2019

She would so appreciate a nice table and chairs so that they can eat some happy, healthy meals together!

"Thank you so much for purchasing this table and chairs for Clarissa and her daughter! We delivered the table and assisted Clarissa in building it - it is always amazing for our youth to practice these real world independent living skills! She is ecstatic with the table and was thrilled to start her new year off with a table to eat on - her first since leaving the shelter and getting her apartment. Thank you for thinking of our foster youth during the holiday season, and always!"
