When a child is removed from their family and placed into foster care, the child often has only the clothes they are wearing. It’s a painful situation, made even worse because the child doesn’t have a few simple things.
Here’s how you can help: your gift of just $37.50 will provide a backpack full of exactly what a child in this situation needs. You’ll provide everything they need for that night and tomorrow. A pair of pajamas, a toothbrush, a blanket…
You’ll even provide a toy for young kids to hug and hold that night.
This year, please provide a first night backpack! Currently, we have about 5 backpacks on hand but we expect about 35 children to be displaced in the coming month. That means that, as of right now, 30 kids will have to go without unless we do something!
On average, each backpack contains about $125-worth of supplies. You’re able to provide so much for just $37.50 because we use donated goods and volunteer time to multiply the power of your gift.
Any gift made before midnight, December 31 will be tax deductible for 2018.
