Sponsor Children in Foster Care
Help families provide a fun activity for a child their first night in a new home by purchasing gift cards to restaurants.
For a child in Foster Care, they have bounced around, constantly being introduced to new parents and siblings. To help them track their lives, we make sure each child puts together a “life book” of photos and memories for them to take with them no matter what home they are in.
Help children create these books by purchasing scrapbooks and scrapbooking materials!
Children in Foster Care also get sent to a new home without much notice. They need suitcases to help pack up their personal belongings so they don’t get left behind.
Help children maintain their personal items that hold meaning to them by donating suitcases!

Sponsor Kids Transitioning to Adulthood
Youth aging out of services need help transitioning to adulthood. Some of these young adults have children. They need diapers, wet wipes, diaper rash cream and children’s no tears shampoo!
They are also often moving into their first apartments and need shampoo, body wash, deodorant, laundry detergent, 409 or other non-bleach all-purpose cleaners, toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap (sink and dishwasher versions).
They also are looking for work as they explore their career pathway. They need professional shoes, clothes, winter coats, note pads, flash drives, and more.
