Connections operates three residential facilities with two in New Braunfels, Texas and one in Portland, Texas. During the school year, the residents have a fairly normal routine that includes school, homework, dinner and bed. However, the summer months can be difficult for children in a shelter environment; three months is a long time to spend in a small housing facility with 16 kids. This campaign aims to get the kids out of the shelter for a day of even just an afternoon. Donated funds will be used to purchase amusement park tickets (Fiesta Texas, ZDT's, Schlitterbahn, etc.), activity passes (pool, movies, bowling, etc.) and gift cards for special treats (Dairy Queen, Orange Leaf, Bahama Bucks, etc.).
