You helped us get to our goal of $3,000! Crummack Huseby is so grateful for your participation in helping Together We Rise, a non-profit organization that supports kids in foster care. On Friday, June 27th, our supporters arrived at Crummack Huseby headquarters to decorate the Sweet Cases. With your donations, our team of supporters decorated and stuffed 95+ Sweet Cases that will be given to foster kids who don’t have their own suitcase to carry their belongings. We hand-decorated duffel bags and filled them with a blanket, a toothbrush, crayons and a coloring book and the softest and sweetest teddy bear for them to snuggle. So much love and care went into every Sweet Case!
