So many beautiful friends and family that have made it a tradition every year to help what we call the lost children of Boulder Highway. Many people don’t see these kids that live in the weekly’s on Boulder Highway as homeless. Even though MOST nights they have a roof over their head, they really don’t have much, especially not parents who care enough for them to give them food, clothes and toys over their own selfish needs such as drugs, alcohol etc. I have personally seen how horrible their living conditions are and I can only imagine what they see and go through every day. A few years ago a little boy told me that his mommy and daddy gave away his toys and never gave them back like they promised and that he couldn’t believe they finally came TODAY….
Every year we gather new toys for kids - starting from newborn babies to ages 17 years old as well as money donations that 100% completely go towards new toys & food shopping for the family as well. We get a list from the managers of this weekly with the sex & ages of kids and give at least 3-4 good presents each and two food bags with a lot of easily made food items that the kids can make over their Christmas break. We get a team of elves together and wrap EVERY SINGLE one of those presents and bag up the food. Then on Christmas morning we hand deliver everything to the kids and families!
J & S Hope Foundation - Is in honor of our dearest Joann Burnett aka Princess Joni and Pops, Stephen Burnett. May their spirit live on in all of us
