Children Shop for Parents Night
Local volunteers created special memories for 121 homeless children at the Children Shop for Parents Night at Solutions for Change in Vista. Every year during the holidays, Solutions for Change receives donations and support from hundreds of volunteers all over North County San Diego. This year, volunteers came together with the staff at the Solutions Family Center and organized a shopping experience that would allow the children to give gifts to their parents. When asked about the event, Marketing Manager Leonard Frost said, “This reached so many people in so many ways. Children are thrilled about shopping for their parents, parents are excited to give their children an opportunity to give back, and the community gets to create meaningful moments of families helping families.” The event is part of a series of holiday events held for residents at the center, including a toy drive, Christmas party, and surprise Christmas decorating event, all organized by volunteers and staff.
