“A child’s happiness is what inspires us to do more, to give more and to love more.”
These are the words that Ms. Susan Antonio, Children’s Joy Foundation USA’s Officer-in-Charge, shared in an interview as they continued to give hope and joy to the children of Bakersfield Homeless Center, September 26.
As the sun rose in Vanowen, Susan and the other CJF volunteers excitedly headed to the center and prepared everything from the gifts to the accommodation to give seamless comfort for the beneficiaries.
All kids, parents and families celebrated in delight as the gift giving program started. The volunteers entertained the beneficiaries with the parlor games. Endless laughter and priceless smiles were etched in the faces of everyone. A wide array of delectable goods such as chocolates, juices, breads, cakes and fresh fruits were served that the children truly savored. It was indeed a great feast. In awe and admiration, the children happily received wonderful gifts – school supplies, toys, and clothes.
Meanwhile, the Bakersfield Homeless Center Management expressed their heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to CJF USA’s unwavering support to the children and the families in the center.
True to its commitment, Children’s Joy Foundation USA will never cease to expand its reach to millions of children where there are no boundaries in spreading love and goodness across the globe.
