Children who have suffered the loss of a parent or loved one, along with family members or guardians, will be attending the July 10, 2018 Taylor Swift concert thanks to West Virginia Caring and its community partners. WV Caring (a non-profit hospice serving north central WV citizens) has embraced grieving children and teens for more than two decades by offering grief support through specialized bereavement programs held in individual West Virginia Caring neighborhoods across the Mountain State. WV Caring – along with its sister organization, Capital Caring, serving Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia — has access to a private suite at FedEx Field for the concert. Financial gifts from Apple Federal Credit Union and other donors will allow 17 children and their guardians (including three children and a mother from Clarksburg, WV) to be treated to an all-expenses-paid experience, including transportation, food, concert tickets and souvenirs. Transportation is being provided courtesy of DC Trails.
