LYNCHBURG, Va. – You can show love to your family and friends this month, while also raising money to help children in foster care.
Funds raised will help the group build a fully furnished home where children awaiting foster care can go temporarily, rather than wait at the Department of Social Services.
“We have a few nominations lined up. People are really excited. I have someone who is going to nominate their granddaughter on Valentine’s Day, and it’s just a cute little surprise. Kids love it, all ages love it; so we’re excited to get the ball rolling here,” said Dana Guenther, program coordinator of Lynchburg’s Isaiah 117 House.
The group’s so-called ‘sign fairies’ will deliver the hearts outside a home, church, school or business every day in February.
