Blue Ridge Pride!
It’s not an easy time for many LGBTQ+ families, youth, children, and educators. One of our core values is to support all families so they can best support their children. So we were excited to show up for them at the Blue Ridge Pride Festival on September 30. We handed out 125 free pride-themed children’s books, some donated by our friends at Read to Succeed. We made and gave away hundreds of buttons with fun designs using a button maker that were a big hit. And our friends Adrienne and Kim offered face painting and smiles galore.
