Fundraiser To Bring Kids Who Need Adopting To Gilroy

This summer, Heart to Heart with Ukraine will be bringing 8 to 10 children to Gilroy to host for 2 1/2 weeks. Several children are already in the process of being adopted by families, but some are still in need of a family.

These children have no hope for a future in Ukraine where they are literally put out on the street at age 16 to fend for themselves.

A fundraiser to be able to bring the children this summer will be held Sunday, June 26 at the Gilroy Chevy’s from 10am to 10pm.

Please let your server know that you’re eating at Chevy’s to help raise money for the children to come this summer.
