Join us on Saturday, December 15th to collect donations and assemble birthday baskets for local teens living in foster care, which will be given to them on their birthday. You can contribute by signing up for one of our free dance or karate master classes for children ages 3-18, in exchange for donating at least one birthday basket item. We will even have hip hop classes taught by members of the Utah Jazz Hip Hop Troupe!
We will also be serving lunch to anyone who takes a class or helps assemble baskets!

ABOUT THE CHILDREN THIS SERVICE PROJECT IS BENEFITTING: Right now there are over 2,800 foster children in Utah, and approximately 750 are teenagers. Many of them are living in a group home setting. Rather than loving parents to take care of their needs, they are cared for by hired help that rotates in shifts, leaving them unattended. In addition to the many struggles they face on a daily basis, they don’t have anyone to celebrate them on their birthday.
