This holiday season, Dutra-Cerro-Graden (DCG) is proud to support three Bay Area organizations dedicated to serving local foster children. By donating to Seneca Center, Foster A Dream and One Child, DCG hopes to further our mission of Creating Communities of Value™.
Founded in 1985, Seneca Center has dedicated itself to becoming a “system of care” agency, providing a comprehensive continuum of community-based and family-focused treatment services for children and families. During the holidays, which can be particularly difficult for children who live in foster or group homes, Seneca Center provides the opportunity to sponsor foster children. “Your support is helping to strengthen families and give children the second chance they need to be healthy, happy, and to become fully contributing members of our community in the future,” says Executive Assistant Maggie Ferrill.
At Foster A Dream, based in Martinez, they brighten the holidays each year for thousands of foster children by building a 20,000 sq. ft. Holiday Wonderland where foster children are greeted by “elves” who guide them through the Stocking Station, Toy Shop, SnowZone, and much more. DCG’s donation was used to stock the winter coat station that provides a warm jacket to each child who attended.
OneChild is dedicated to providing disadvantaged children troughout the Bay Area with new clothing and school supplies. The organization’s goal is to promote self-esteem in underprivileged children so they may appreciate their individual worth…one child at a time.
