Thanks to Volunteers, Disabled Teens Enjoy 'Shore Dreams for Kids'

Teens from Children's Specialized Hospital's Kohl's Friday Night Fever spent some time at the shore in July.

Along with volunteers from Kohl’s, teens from’s Kohl’s Friday Night Fever (FNF) program—a monthly recreational group—spent July 14 down the shore.

“Shore Dreams For Kids” is a day that the teens look forward to every year. Teens enjoyed some good music, food, games, and a train ride. The FNF group members even received some cool beach bags with towels and fans. But the highlight is that everyone gets to ride on a power boat!

All of this is fun is sponsored by the Shore Dreams For Kids non-profit organization, www.shoredreamsforkids.org/.
