The money will go to help the home's vocational training program, to buy and maintain vending machines. It's an opportunity for kids to get job experience. They stock the machines, operate them and manage finances.
It's also a chance for them to earn a little money. The skills they learn are supposed to help them with jobs later on in life.
"Being on time, that's having the responsibility of being there during their shift, from there, learning how to work a machine," said Activity Coordinator, Marc Alcorn.
Apart from learning skills, Alcorn said they work with some kids who have behavioral problems. He says the vocational program is also therapeutic.
