YFTK's Just for Us Dance ~ Mother's Day and Father's Day can be tough for our kids. This season is full of events, dances, teas and crafts that can make us feel different, and magnify the absence of Mom or Dad. We are blessed to have grandparents, aunties, uncles, and special loved ones to step in for our parents not with us, but we can feel different at these events. Not at the Just for Us Dance! This is for our families as they are....and what fun we had! Thank you Oakland Christian School LEAD team for joining us....you really made the night!
It was an amazing day for three local families who are facing the holidays without Mom and Dad. Please enjoy our photos from the day. Special thanks to our title sponsors Harness Dickey, and our friends at OCG Companies, Samuel Son & Co LTD, OCG Companies, Specialized Care Services, Dr. & Mrs. Matthew Vanderlaan, and the Yatooma Brothers.
Last Sunday, Our YFTK family gathered for our annual Christmas Party. We enjoyed a visit from Santa, skating, and yummy food from Detroit Wing Co..! Many of our children left in new, warm winter coats donated by Tapper's Jewelry, and all of our families left with a frozen turkey and pie for their Christmas dinners, donated by OCG Companies.
Happy Thanksgiving from Yatooma's Foundation For The Kids! The holidays can be a particularly difficult time for our families. We are entering the "Most Wonderful Time of the Year" with bittersweet memories and with someone special missing. Our annual Thanksgiving Dinner is a way for families to gather together and be thankful for each other and all we have, but to also gain strength from one another as we enter the season, with our YFTK family who understand the emotions that follow the day. Thank you Erin Gray for the photographs!
So much fun at the Just for Us Dance! Great food from Detroit Wing Co., music by Faith Abrahamian, and our YFTKids were able to make a card in honor of Mom or Dad for a local Veteran. Thank you Captains Moreno and the The Salvation Army Conner Creek Corps for the use of your building and to our amazing volunteers!
