For going on nine years, Heartland for Children has helped to provide holiday gifts for thousands of children and teens throughout Polk, Highlands and Hardee Counties in Central Florida. 1,360 children and teens received presents last year alone through generous donations from individuals, groups, and businesses.
It’s not just about helping the children, the children impact our lives as well. My family is multi-cultured, it is a learning experience for everyone. Both the children and the foster family learns each other’s cultures- what foods they like, what products they use, etc. We take the children with us on outings to the beach, theme parks, and treat them the same as our own children. The children are a part of our family.
