“The mission and vision of the Foster Angels of Hillsborough County, Inc., is that every child that has been separated from their family and placed in a foster home due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment will be able to enjoy the Christmas Holiday.” Foster Angels.

Chamberlain’s DECA chapter will continue to help out the community with our newest donation drive benefiting, Helping Hands, run by Florida DECA, to help families who are in need of food.
