This holiday season will be a bit brighter for children in foster care in Boone and Winnebago Counties.
Students and staff at Washington Academy, Meehan Elementary, Seth Whitman Elementary, Belvidere South Middle School, Belvidere Central Middle School, Belvidere High School, and Belvidere North High School worked together to collect and wrap 181 Christmas gifts for local foster children. "Through the kindness and generosity of our staff and students, we were able to help the Foster Care Alliance provide a Christmas gift to every child in foster care in Boone and Winnebago County," said coordinator Misty Commare. This is the fifth year the district has participated in the Adopt-an-Angel Program. "Administrators, staff, and students have all gone above and beyond to make this program a success," added Mrs. Commare.
