Member Spotlight: TBHC Foster Care and Adoption

Texas Baptist Home for Children has been a part of the Waxahachie landscape for over 110 years.  Founded, originally, as an orphanage, TBHC now serves children and families through its Foster, Adoption and Teen Pregnancy Care Programs.  On average, they serve approximately 80-100 children at any given time.
TBHC is blessed with donors who see that the children receive Easter baskets each year, but this year, Pete’s Tire & Automotive Service reached out to see how they could come alongside and bless the children and their foster families beyond that.  It was decided that a new spring outfit would be a wonderful way to show the kids some extra love, so through the Chamber of Commerce, they are rallying other local businesses to help.
We’re asking that each business that would like to participate, choose 1 or more children, and either purchase a new spring outfit for them, or donate a gift card sufficient to provide an outfit.  Assignments for genders and sizes will be distributed at the locations listed below, and that will be where you will bring your donation.  All donations are due by Wednesday, April 13.  Due to Covid restrictions, they are unable to accept used items.   A huge ‘thank you’ to Pete’s Tire & Automotive Service for reaching out to TBHC and looking for ways to serve our community!
