SLHI Christmas Charity Pajama Party & Holiday Market 

We had a great time at our pajama party in December.  Our SLHI Cares Program helps foster children get basic need items. This fundraising event received over 200 pajamas and 100 stuffed animals for Christmas Care Packages!  This community effort allowed us to provide 350 care to local foster care facilities and 160 pajamas to a store for foster parents to shop for their foster kids.  

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported our cause.  We would like to thank our volunteers, community partners, vendors and sponsors.  We hope you all had a great time, and we hope to see you again next year!
