On Saturday, December 17th UFC hosted a Candy Cane Lane walk-through for UFC participants, alumni, and their children and caregiving families. This was a joyful and fun-filled experience where attendees got to see each other, say hello to Santa & Mrs. Claus, enjoy some holiday music, collect snacks and gourmet cookies, and choose a holiday gift.
We want to give a special shout-out to UFC staff, board, and Junior League of Los Angeles volunteers who showed up on this special day to spread holiday cheer and love to our current and former foster youth. We also want to thank Zoe Christian Fellowship in Whittier for lending us their space for this gathering. And last but not least, we want to say a heartfelt thank you to Laura Foster Parent Partner, and her amazing community who spent the entire month of November donating gifts to make this holiday extra special for our young people. We are so grateful for everyone who came together to remind our youth that they are seen and loved.
