Preparing for the event, Carmen Mercado and Sylvia Rodrigues folded more than 200 pairs of new pajamas, which were donated by Carter’s and OshKosh.

What better way to celebrate going back to school than with food, fun and shopping for that perfect “first day” outfit? At Devereux Florida’s Back-to-School Open House, held Aug. 24 at the Family Counseling Center, about 60 foster children and their foster families did just that. As the Devereux team led fun activities for the kids, parents filled free tote bags with donated clothing, toys and supplies. "It was a wonderful opportunity for foster parents to interact with the staff that supports them each day," said Devereux Florida Program Director Tia Llewellyn.

Meanwhile, at Devereux Florida’s Viera Campus, residents took part in a cool back-to-school celebration hosted by the on-campus, Devereux School. The ice cream social is just one of the school’s variety of events Including a fall festival, holiday festivities, prom and graduation that bring students, teachers, volunteers and members of the community together.
