CURRENT NEEDS

SPONSOR A CARE BAG

Care Bags are a need all year long.

Many children and teens come enter care without any of their personal items and only the clothes on their backs. These bags are filled with toiletry items, age appropriate activities/toys, comfort items such as, a blanket, socks, underwear and pajamas to help them transition into their new home quickly.

Each foster child that comes into care or our relative and non relative placements receive a care bag to take with them to their new home. Sponsor an entire care bag, provide extra items for emergencies or give a monetary donation to help provide care bags.

A great project for your family, a church ministry team,

small group, children's ministry or youth ministry.

CHILDREN'S BAGS 2T - 16 AND ADULT BAGS SMALL - 2X ONLY.

PLEASE NO BABY BAGS AT THIS TIME.

Show love and support to our St. Clair County Foster Workers by helping fulfill these needs:
