Community Members Enjoy Adopt-a-Cottage Time at Kurn Hattin
September 16, 2019
Each year, Kurn Hattin hosts an Adopt-A-Cottage night for the business, organization, and individual sponsors of the cottages where the children live on campus. The sponsorship provides for basic necessities of cottage life, such as new pillows, sheets, kitchen supplies, and other household items. This year, each cottage received really cool gift–air conditioners! To show appreciation to those who have “adopted” a cottage, a meal is held in the sponsors honor so that they can spend time with the children whom their gifts have directly benefitted.
The sponsors sat with the children from their cottage for an evening meal and activity. The sounds of laughter and lively conversation filled Watson Hall as the adults and children got to know one another. After the meal, the sponsors visited the cottages to socialize and learn about the daily lives of the children.
It is always wonderful when the children have the opportunity to meet members of the community who care about their success.
