This year, the Retreat of Awakening partnered with the Foster Kids Charity, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in Dallas, Texas that strives to ensure that every child in the foster care system has their basic personal needs met and continues to improve the well-being of children while they are in foster care.  

Thank you to all the generous campers who brought over 270 toys for the 2023 Retreat of Awakening's Toy Drive!!  

Each camper also made gift sacks, with inspirational messages, for the foster kids to store their personal belongings.
