Target Builds Sweet Cases for Foster Youth
What do grown-ups and pillow pets have in common? Not much, except that sometimes the grown-ups come to our Brea, CA office here at TWR and help put these stuffed animals in their new hand-drawn homes, Sweet Cases!
Last week, Together We Rise partnered with 15 of Target’s Corporate Interns to assemble and decorate 25 Sweet Cases! Each of them will go to foster youth in Southern California. Our Sweet Cases include lots of goodies like stuffed animals, blankets, and hygiene products. The Target interns also added the personal touch of a handwritten note filled with encouraging words.
These Sweet Cases are filled with love and will provide comfort to a foster child who has just been relocated. Though it might take time to adjust to a new home, these children will doze off to sleep at night accompanied by their new fluffy pals. Our programs make a world of difference, and we couldn’t do it without wonderful partners like Target!
