Ocean Ridge Charities Association (ORCA) - $2,000
ORCA has been a generous repeating donor to WAVES 4 K.I.D.S. for many years. Their latest grant much needed grant will be used for supplying the KIDS Kloset. The KIDS Kloset is a room in the DSS building in Bolivia where social workers can get items needed by children under their care. Items that we supply in that Kloset include car seats, pack 'n plays, diapers, onesies, formula, and gift cards to Walmart. The gift cards are used by case workers to buy clothing specific to the children under their care. That Kloset is unique in the world of Departments of Social Service and provides tremendous value to foster families in need in Brunswick County.
