Since 1993, the Unicorn Thrift Shop in San Jose has been devoted to donating store profits to help the children and families served by EMQ FamiliesFirst. At their annual luncheon, volunteers presented Roberto Favela, vice president of Foster Care and Adoption Services of EMQ FamilesFirst, with a special donation of $17,500. This donation will make a significant impact in the vital programs offered to kids in foster care.
Roberto took a moment to thank the volunteers for their valued service and educate them about the foster care programs the agency has to offer. As an added bonus, a foster family spoke at the luncheon about their foster care experience. Later, volunteers expressed how moved they were by both speakers.
Thank you to outgoing Unicorn Thrift Shop President, Anita Baum; Vice President, Mary Anne Salmon and the rest of the Unicorn Board for a successful year!
