This year, many organizations have had to find creative solutions to the traditional holiday festivities they plan every year. For the non-profit agency Family Programs Hawaii (FPH), this meant changing its annual holiday party, which benefits Hawai‘i’s foster children, from its usual in-person event to a drive-through party.
Goodies, toys, and food were passed out to the families that joined, and the event also featured music and photo opportunities. The Cades Foundation was proud to support FPH’s event, and several Cades Schutte LLP attorneys and staff volunteered by handing out gifts to the children.
“The whole party is all about bringing foster kids together and recognizing them at this special time of year,” said Cades Schutte Management Committee member and Cades Foundation Director Marc E. Rousseau in a special message to FPH. “The Cades Foundation thinks this is an ideal charity to support because in these times, who needs more love and attention than foster kids.”
The theme of this year’s event was “Reach for the Stars.” In an interview with Hawaii News Now, Cades Schutte partner and FPH board member Michele S. Loudermilk said, “we want to give the kids hope that if they try hard and everything, that they can do whatever they want to do.”
