The Kiwanis Cape Coral club generously allowed six young adults in the SIYA community to visit their Thrift Store and choose furniture and household goods for their apartments. SIYA young adults who are former foster children are required to live on their own at eighteen years old, this is called ‘aging out’ or formally called ‘being emancipated from the state’s care’. Most ‘aged out’ young adults are still in high school and receive a small Independent Living stipend. However, money is still tight.
Mr Sam Huber, President of the Kiwanis Cape Coral club, enthusiastically assisted SIYA’s young adults and set up free delivery of over $650 worth of merchandise from the Thrift Store on 708 SE 47th Terrace in Cape Coral.
Mr Robert Kovacs, Vice President of the Philipino-American Club and SIYA donor, as well as Mr Eggers from the Guardian Ad Litem office, also stopped by to be part of the SIYA community event.
Many, many thanks to the Kiwanis South Fort Myers club, long-time SIYA donor and friend, for making the introductions with the Cape’s Kiwanis club.
