DAILY ITEM INTERVIEW

Staff from the KidsPeace Foster Care Bloomsburg office attended a Child’s Fair that was held at the Columbia Mall on April 7. At the event we had children decorate a brown paper bag with markers or stickers. After they finished decorating their bag we then gave them free popcorn. The event was very successful and very busy. Thanks to those that helped — Those that help during the event included Victoria Ryan, Martha Brown, Rob Twiddy, Tony Gold, Kayla Gold, and Paul Price.

Speaking of Paul – he was featured in the Daily Item newspaper (Sudbury, PA) for a story on the state of foster care in the region. Paul sat down with Eric Scicchitano from the Daily Item for a video interview to discuss recent trends and the need for foster homes. Click HERE to view the interview.
