Social Butterfly Foundation is fun filled. We love the children so much. We have a food drive were people donate food to the offices so the children can have food. And for the girls we have etiquette classes to teach them how to be young ladies. We don’t as yet have boys in the program but they will come, we just wanted to start with the girls first.

We also have events such as fund raisers, community outreaches and youth mentoring. We always encourage the children.
