Sibling Reconnect Day

On Sat May 3rd The Junior League of Eugene held their Sibling Reconnect day!! It was such a great day, there were 30 kids from 11 different families that had a very memorable day of fun, crafts, playground time and food.
 

The Scrap Books were the main event and the support from The Artist Palette, other local donors and Junior League sustainers made it happen!!!
Blue Bus Creative came with their photo booth and the kids dressed up in silly Hats, wigs, large glasses, masks etc. and got their pictures taken and developed within seconds!
There were face painters that donated their time and created all sorts of cool face images that kiddos really got into. Everything from zombies and bats to butterflies and rainbows.
Junior League members provided snacks at the beginning, good sources of energy food like bananas,  string cheese, chips, yogurts and bottled waters. Along with a goodie bag with Frisbee, footballs, bthrm toiletries, etc.


Track Town Pizza donated 5 giant pizzas along with Junior League purchasing 5 for later in the day meals.
While talking to some of the foster parents it was apparent that this event was very special to the foster families and their kids. Mainly because their kids had a day to just be kids while being together with siblings and family in a fun, stress free atmosphere.In wrapping up the day the scrap books were a success. A nice memento that the kids really enjoyed and will be able to add onto and continue with other pictures, drawings and special moments they have.
