Grand Opening of our Livermore Clothes Closet!
We are so excited to announce the opening of our second Clothes Closet on May 1, 2021. Our new Clothes Closet is located in the heart of the Livermore Valley, making it especially convenient and accessible for our members who live in the Tri-Valley area to schedule appointments to pick up clothes and other personal items for their new placements.
This new venture would not have been possible without our incredibly generous partners, Eric and Scarlett Payne, who converted their warehouse & store front offices, fitted them out and donated their use to the ACFPA for the sole purpose of establishing a new and larger Clothes Closet in Livermore.
Support Girl Scout with her Gold Award Project and Help Fill the Livermore Closet
Dear ACFPA Families
Please let me introduce myself. My name is Taty Munoz and I am 15 years old. I live in Livermore Ca. with my Dad, Mom and two sisters. I am the oldest and am in 9th grade. I am also an avid softball player, girl scout and started my own baking business. I aspire to one day be a High Profile Criminal Detective and I am working hard to make my dreams a reality. I just wanted to give you a little background but there is more to me then these simple facts. I have been a Girl Scout for 11 years. I have completed my Bronze Award, My Silver Award and now am working on my Gold Award. This award is the highest achievable award within the Girl Scout Organization. It requires great planning, organizing, fundraising and commitment. It can take up to a year or more to obtain. This is probably the largest project I have ever embarked on thus far.
The reason I am writing this letter is to share with you about my Gold Award. My goal is to raise 5000-10,000$ to help fill up the Foster care resource closet that is being created in the Tri-Valley. With the great support of Light for his Kingdom Ministries and Alameda County Foster Parent Association, I believe this is very attainable. The foster care system is very close to my heart because I was once a foster kid.
Are you done building your family through adoption? There is still a lot we can offer you through the ACFPA.
