At Friends of Children and Families we provide quality programs for children placed in foster care. We serve children in group homes and throughout the community.
School will be starting soon and our kids need your help! For many families back-to-school shopping is a fun end-of-summer tradition that builds confidence for the new school year. But with school supply lists getting longer and prices going up, it can be a challenging time for foster families.
That’s where you come in! With your help, local foster children and families can get the supplies they need to start the school year off right! Simple, yet essential, materials like a new backpack, pens and pencils, and new binders can give kids the confidence they need to be successful in school!
A $10 donation will provide one student with enough pencils to last the entire school year.
A $25 donation will provide one student with a quality backpack.
A $100 donation will provide one student with a backpack and the necessary materials to start the school year.
A $200 donation will provide one student with a backpack and all of the basic materials they will need for an ENTIRE year of school supplies!
Our philosophy is based on this belief: if children are provided with love, a sense of security, structure, and positive opportunities for growing in a family and community atmosphere, then healthy development will occur. We strive to provide that kind of environment by offering the necessary services, support, and care for children in need. It is individual donations such as yours that help us fulfill our mission and allow us to continue providing this much needed service to children.
Every donation counts! If you would rather donate supplies directly, you can drop them off at our office or purchase them from our Amazon Wishlist and they will be shipped to us. Your donation directly benefits the kids we serve and will allow them to start the school year with confidence!
