Foster Friends would like to recognize Pam Castille for her many years of service and dedication to helping foster children in Acadiana.pam-castille-outstanding-volunteer

We were able to surprise Pam Castille at her place of employment, Allen & Gooch, with an award presentation to recognize her as 2016 Outstanding Volunteer! It was such a special experience to have all of her co-workers congregate in the lobby to help us applaud Pam for her many years of community involvement. We were joined by Claudelle Ancar with the Lafayette Region Department of Children & Family Services. Foster Friends is incredibly grateful for all that Pam has done, and we were excited to present her with an award to show our appreciation.

Over the past decade, Pam has been instrumental in working with the Department of Children & Family Services to provide Christmas gifts for foster children who no permanent home during the holidays.

She has a heart for giving and a passion for helping children! Every year at Christmas time, she coordinates, shops, wraps, and delivers gifts for children who are in the foster care program.

Her enthusiasm for helping children is contagious! Through her leadership, she successfully recruits family, friends and neighbors to donate gifts to fulfill all the items on each of the children’s “Santa Wish List”.

She has dedicated countless hours to blessing these children at Christmas time. During the busiest time of year, when most people are coordinating family gatherings, Pam focuses her time on the children who don’t have a family.

For years, she has served the foster children in our community, and we would like to take the time to recognize all that she has done! Pam Castille is such a positive influence in our community, and we are honored to work with her to continue her years of efforts.

Thank you, Pam, for being such an Outstanding Volunteer!pam-castille-outstanding-volunteer-presentation-2016
