Family House, San Francisco - April 14, 2012

   
About the Event...

On April 14, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m, ABC volunteers held a kids craft day at Family House, an amazing organization that provides temporary housing to families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at the UCSF Children's Hospital. Volunteers taught the kids living at Family House how to make friendship bracelets, lanyards, hemp jewelry and tissue paper flowers. We all had a really fantastic time and were amazed at how quickly even the youngest residents learned how to make bracelets and lanyards. It was also really touching to see the kids making tissue paper flowers to give to their parents and siblings. We still have materials left from this project and definitely want to go back and do it again, so please join us next time!

Below are some pictures of the event:
