It’s More than a Portmanteau.
Susan Stocks unites neighbors and plays Santa for foster kids in need of Holiday cheer.
Susan Stocks started Brunch With A Purpose in 2008. BWAP unites friends, neighbors, community leaders, restaurants and other sponsors to purchase holiday gifts for kids in the foster care system. BWAP wraps and delivers the gifts too, always keeping the gifter’s name anonymous. Rather than toys, many of the kids who benefit from BWAP each year receive the necessities: clothes without holes, in their size, and other small, life accessories that would mean they’d fit in at school. It's about about helping these kids find a sense of normalcy amid their, often better-off, peers. Brunch With A Purpose is a campaign to better children's lives one smile at a time.
