Our presenters were Pete Berti and Dale Maples.  They’re advocates for The Forgotten Initiative Foster Care Resource Center. They solicit supplies for Foster Children.  Dale has taken in lots of children but has to give them up after 6 months to a year.  The idea is to let their families get them through a bad patch.  For more info contact Dale at 834-1604
