Waco Outreach was featured as the community organization of the week on Saturday, Feb. 15 at the Waco Farmers Market. Waco Outreach staff were able to set up a booth to share information with shoppers on our services while also working to recruit potential foster parents.
“It was a great opportunity for us,” said Brooke Davilla, Waco Outreach director. “We ended up having several folks take our information and we had two families who gave us their information. The exposure itself was great. We also were able to hear stories from the community about their experiences with Methodist Children’s Home.”
Davilla discovered the opportunity and learned that the farmers market planned to start a program where they highlighted a community organization each Saturday. During the afternoon, Waco Outreach staff made homemade birdfeeders as a way to interact with the crowd. They will return to the farmers market again in April.
