Bouncing it forward for foster kids

Bounce U Bounce-a-thon

It's all about bouncing it forward for one local business.

BounceU is holding its first ever Bounce-A-Thon Friday night and Saturday morning.

Kids can bounce for free, if you bring in at least $5 worth of school supplies to donate. The donations will fill backpacks to give to foster children through the greater Lehigh Valley.

"With working here our main focus is making memories for children, and being a kid-oriented place, so we decided to help out the foster kids because a lot of times we take for granted the things we have, and foster kids [are] without," said Mandy Megee, assistant manager at BounceU in Bethlehem.

Claudia Hill, a foster mom, explained, "Sometimes they don't come with anything but the clothes on their back and I've had that multiple times happen, and they just want something that's their own."

Here are the times and locations for the Bounce-A-Thon:
