A Party for Everyone

Mar 1, 2017 | 0 comments

Earlier this year a team from Coppell, TX, visited the Touch A Life Care Center and threw two incredible parties! The first was a big birthday party for every Touch A Life kid. Since some children came to Touch A Life with no birth records, our annual party makes sure that no one is left out from the birthday fun.

The Texas team also brought supplies and gifts to host a staff-appreciation party for our Care Center’s hard-working houseparents, cooks, drivers, and maintenance team. We are so incredibly thankful for the Ghanaian staff that has sacrificed so much to create a loving home for every child being restored after exploitation.

The staff party was a proper Texas BBQ in Ghana, complete with grilled chicken, red bandanas, and gift bags for a little pampering!
