Thank you to the airman from Nellis Air Force Base who organized a donation fundraiser for our foster youth! They packed bags filled with blankets, teddy bears, hygiene kits, and handwritten personal messages to the kids. Thank you for your support!

Scavenger Hunt
Families can participate in the scavenger hunt which will be announced late next week. For the scavenger hunt, they can submit their photos to SantaRun@opportunityvillage.org to be entered to win prizes. Please have them write in the subject line “DFS Scavenger Hunt” so I know they are a part of DFS. All people with DFS who participate in the scavenger hunt will only have to take a picture in front of one of the locations to be eligible to win prizes so that everyone has a fair and equal opportunity to win. (this is exclusive to DFS)
