Foster children in the Crawford and Sebastian county area will benefit from a $3,500 donation from the Arvest Foundation. 

The funds will be used to purchase office equipment to help expand The CALL’s services to foster families and children. 

The CALL county coordinator for Crawford and Sebastian counties, Emily Treadaway, explained, “With over 700 kids in foster care in Sebastian and Crawford Counties, The CALL is working to recruit, train, and support more foster homes. These funds will be used to purchase computers, shelving, and other office equipment to expand our services.”

“The CALL in Crawford and Sebastian counties does a tremendous job of supporting local foster families,” said Daniel Skipper, commercial banker with Arvest Bank. “While recruiting new families to care for children in the foster care system is important, supporting existing foster families is crucial. The CALL focuses its time and resources to do both of these. Funds from the Arvest Foundation will help equip The CALL to better communicate with, support, and encourage prospective and open foster homes in our local communities."
