The Santa Clarita Valley Corvette Club presented Assisteens, the 51-member teenage auxiliary of Assistance League Santa Clarita, with a $2,000 donation at their meeting on July 7.
Assisteens chair and vice chair, Mark McClafferty and Erin Meottel, gratefully accepted this donation that will be used to provide 50 backpacks to the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). The backpacks contain many items including toiletries and personal hygiene items, bath linens, a blanket, writing materials, and new socks, underwear and a t-
shirt. DCFS will give one of these backpacks to each child being taken into foster care. The backpack will stay with the child as he/she navigates the foster care system.
The Assisteens extend sincere thanks to the members of the Santa Clarita Valley Corvette Club for helping to provide a measure of comfort and support for the children who find themselves in this unfortunate situation.
