Merrillville, IN – NYAP Indiana hosts a Foster Family Holiday Party
It was a party!!
Led by Licensing Coordinators Sueann Procopio and Kenya Barlow, the Merrillville staff hosted a
Foster Family Holiday Party on December 6th. The party was held at “Knights of Columbus” hall, which was donated by Sueann’s father, Mr. Klein. Mr. Klein also played Santa Claus for the evening. There were games and prizes for the children, music played by “DJ” Larry Wilbon (foster parent), and plenty of joy and laughter.
Donations were received from 3 angel trees located at the local Indiana State Policy Department, Lakeside Credit Union and Grand Park Café. Donations were also received from several local businesses, restaurants, individuals in the community, and the president of local union 556.
Every child who attended the party left with a gift and a candy bag (donated by Albanese Candy Factory). Dinner for the evening was catered by Panda Express, The Olive Garden, Chick Fil-A, and Domino’s Pizza; which all donated enough food to feed the 200 attendees. The party was a huge success and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves!
