Patricia Fuqes with The Giving Tree delivered twenty-eight (28) Peace & Smiles Boxes to the Office of Children & Youth this date for abused and neglected children. The Giving Tree is an organization dedicated to “planting the seeds of giving”. Each Peace & Smiles Box contained crayons, markers, play doh, colored pencils, activity book, coloring book, journal, deck of cards and stickers and was wrapped and decorated by a child for a child. “This is a wonderful way for children to help other children,” commented Ms. Fuqes. We could not agree more. Professional Casework staff delivered boxes to children on their caseloads and also kept boxes on hand for children who need to stop in our office. Thank you!!
