Local Business Helps Foster Children

Recently, we introduced you to Brian in our Gift Of Love report. He told us how he loves fishing, but doesn't own a fishing pole.

Today, Brian, and all the other boys at Azelway Boys Ranch in Tyler, were given their own fishing poles, thanks to Jeff Wright. Jeff donated ten fishing poles from the sporting goods department at the Super Wal-Mart on south Broadway.

The boys were very thankful, considering most of them don't have any personal belongings from their home. "This is amazing. I just really appreciate them giving us fishing poles cause now we have something," says 12 year old Landon Morrison.

Most foster children are removed from their homes with just the clothes on their back. So, receiving this gift really meant a lot to them.

Azelway is a group home for East Texas foster children.
