Bubbles Up!

1

The Virginia Home for Boys and Girls recently put on a great night at the Barrel Thief in Richmond.

The VA Home for Boys and Girls was founded in 1846 in Church Hill. It relocated to it’s current location in 1957. Originally a male only organization, in 2004, the home decided to start housing females as well.

The children here can come from the Department of Social Justice,  Juvenile Justice, social service organizations, and even parents/guardians of the children. When possible the children  return to their families and homes, but some move into independent living or possibly adoptive/foster homes. The VHBG facilities are located on 30+ acres and include: residential homes, an alternative school, a counseling clinic, a chapel, dining areas, a gym, and multiple sports fields.

Westchester Commons Tree Lighting

There was live music from the School of Rock, a hot chocolate bar, marshmallow roasting and many other activities for the kids. Of course the night would not be complete without an appearance from Santa himself!

Santa upgraded his sleigh this year. He was not brought in by his reindeer, but instead a red Lexus IS 250 convertible!  Once Santa made his way through the crowd, he had the kids help light the tree with him. After a few “snow flurries” the kids lined up to meet Santa and take pictures.
