Montco wants you: prospective adoptive and foster families, that is

Come park your family a the Elmwood Park next month to explore becoming an adoptive or foster family in Montgomery County.

Montco wants you: prospective adoptive and foster families, that is


In a continuing effort to recruit prospective foster and adoptive parents, the Sam Ash music store in King of Prussia and the Montgomery County Office of Children and Youth will sponsor the “Music for Kids’ Sake” event Saturday, Aug. 3 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Fire Chief’s Bandshell in Norristown’s Elmwood Park.

More than 350 children are living in foster care in Montgomery County. About 50 of those cannot return home due to various circumstances, and will need to move from a temporary, foster setting to a permanent, adoptive family.

Four local bands will perform at the event — Vibratek, the Mighty Manatees, the Allen Reynolds Band, and Christian O’Connor. The emcee will be comedian Jim Thomas.

Bring the whole family to the park, which has playgrounds and a snack bar, to explore expanding your family by becoming an adoptive or foster parent. For more information, visit the event’s Facebook page or contact Patricia Martin at 620-278-5829 or
