All kids should enjoy fall

With pumpkin patches, haunted houses and trick-or-treating, fall can be the most exciting time of year for children.

But while we’re shuttling our children around this holiday season, let’s not forget that not all kids in Chilton County are as fortunate.

Thankfully, at least one local group, the Chilton County Foster/Adoptive Parents Association, is trying to make fall enjoyable for children in foster homes, too.

CCFAPA raises funds for foster and adoptive children to be able to participate in fall events.

“These events are a way for the kids to do something that they enjoy and wouldn’t normally get to do,” said Chris Handley, association president.

Those interested in helping the association should call Treasurer Mary Mims at (205) 389-0824 or President Chris Handley at (205) 389-5702. Donations would be tax-exempt.
