Our Hero for a Day event was created eight years ago to give all children in the community the opportunity to transform into the heroes we know them to be. This fun-filled event is full of activities and interactions with heroes of all kinds, while raising awareness about the many foster children waiting to find their forever family.
Although a virtual experience again this year, we have a lot of “everyday” and “super” heroes on hand who will be doing games, activities like Lego building, meet and greets, and other exciting opportunities available to children of all ages.
Additionally, this event is an opportunity to thank our local first responders, health care workers, teachers, firefighters and other frontline essential members for their hard work and dedication to the community over the past year. Without them keeping us all safe, we would not be able to hold this event and continue serving our foster community.
A Family For Every Child (AFFEC) is a 501c3 that offers a comprehensive, highly technical, child-centered approach to finding loving, permanent families for every waiting foster child. AFFEC focuses on assisting special needs/challenging-to-place foster children in finding their Forever Families and we truly could not do what we do without the generosity of our community partners, sponsors and donors.
Thank you for being a Hero for the kids! Up, up and away!
