Here’s What’s Going On In The Community

SEND A LOCAL FOSTER CHILD TO CAMP!

You’ll always remember your first best friend, your first moments of independence, and your first taste of s’mores cooked over an open fire. It was all at camp and you can’t wait for your kids to experience it. But going to camp sometimes isn't an option for the kids who could possibly use it most: California’s nearly 60,000 foster kids. Doesn’t every child deserve to go to camp? With your help, they can. 102.9 KBLX and Sleep Train present: Camp Sweet Dreams. Grant a foster child’s dream for as little as $10

Donate today at campsweetdreams.com/SanFrancisco.
