The 2014 HALOS Back to School Campaign provided uniforms and supplies for over 700 children to return to school preparted and ready to learn. All of the children and youth have open cases of abuse and/or neglect with the SC Department of Social Services and most live in the care of a grandparent or other relative so that they will not have to enter foster care.
On Thursday, August 7, the Young Philanthropists of Trident United Way hosted an ice cream party for kinship families to enjoy while they picked up their supplies.
Live 5 News captured wonderful images from the party. Click to watch:
