Families living in FUSION transitional housing enjoyed a pre-Christmas party courtesy of the Seattle Division of Lennar Homes. Children and their parents were treated to a Saturday Santa Brunch at the Federal Way Performing Arts Center. A breakfast buffet and hot chocolate bar, along with Santa photos and craft activities, entertained attendees.
FUSION Founder Peggy LaPorte read the youngsters a story about how the organization was started 25 years ago around a kitchen table. The event culminated with a special gift from Lennar to each of the children, a computer tablet that produced a chorus of delighted cheers.
Sponsors are a significant source of support for the FUSION organization. Funding, housing repair work, and donations of furnishings from their model homes are some of the ways Lennar has given to FUSION during the year.
“We are so grateful for Lennar’s continued support of FUSION families,” said Robin O’Grady, FUSION Executive Director.
