“Agencies, families and individual people sponsor our clients who have the most need and … have experienced trauma in their lives,” said Criselda DeLaCruz, director of the Nampa Family Justice Center Foundation, in the press release. “100 percent of those proceeds help with needs for the clients. Sometimes it’s a winter jacket, shoes, diapers and other times we help with gas cards. Sometimes we’ve paid for glasses and at times assisted with utility bills and temporary daycare.”
